Video Component

Display videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Twitch, and more

The Video Component is available in both Glide Apps and Glide Pages, but options may differ slightly.

The Video component displays videos in your project from platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Vimeo, and more. To display a video in your project, you just need a video's URL.


In the General tab on the right side of the Layout Editor, locate the Data section. Use the menu in Video to select the value from your data to display, or select Custom to enter a Custom Value for this field.

Hosting videos for the Video Component in Glide Tables or on Google Drive is not advised. Neither of those cloud storage locations is a video streaming service and may be unreliable. Instead, we encourage you to host your video on a streaming service (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).


In Glide Pages, you can customize the Aspect Ratio of your video by selecting this option in General > Options.
