Add a custom feature video

10 minutes to complete this task.
So let's just say you want a completely custom video player that is unique to your site. 10 minutes to complete this task.

That's where our Custom Video Player or CVP comes into it's own. We have two versions, one that has the traditional player controls bar and one that uses a large center button.

The widgets are pre-styled but pack a lot of customization option. Lets take a look at the choice you have with the main CVP Player. First you have the standard video and fall-back image loaders consistent with all our video players.

But then it gets serious. You can change almost everything.

Let's build a new version of the player, to show you how flexible this widget is.

Step One:

Place the CVP player on the page canvas. Muse does not fully render the widget until all of the various parts have been updated, so go ahead and load the assets included in the downloads folder > Sample Video Files and Icons.

Step Two:

Take a look at these two player options see how they differ, see how the players look.

We could have loaded custom icons too, take a look at some of these examples all using the same player widget. We have included the PSD template for the player below for you to experiment with.

CVP - Big Button Widget

The CVP Big Button widget has less styling options but still lets you create a player with the look and feel you need.

The main look changer is the icons, take a look at some of the examples below to see how you could change the look of the player. You can use SVG or PNG files to make a player that matches the style of your site.

Addons options

NOTE: The player is aimed at feature videos. For pages that require multiple videos we suggest using a hosted player such as YouTube, Vimeo or one of the hosted feature players such as Flowplayer or the Sublime player. Experiment and build your own custom players.
