We are using Sitecore 9.0 Update 2 and SXA 1.7 and we want to have a feature to play Youtube,Vimeo & Facebook videos in a single component.

Is it possible to do this in SXA using the OOB components?

  • There is a contradiction, Youtube,Vimeo & Facebook videos are differently rendered, I am not sure, what type of component you want to create. Did you consider using the Rich Text Component and placing the Youtube,Vimeo & Facebook videos as iframes ??? – Sitecore Sam Nov 15 '18 at 19:28

This is not possible in Sitecore SXA out of the box.

Sitecore SXA (Sitecore Experience Accelerator 1.7.1) video component allows:

  • Youtube video (you pass id)
  • Movie in mp4 format:
  • Movie in ogg format:
  • Movie in WebM format:

I created a data template which allows a user to insert a URL and then display the link in an iframe. The link could be single line text (as I have) but a general link field would also work.

Yes, it's possible we have a component called Video Gallery.

Steps:

1) Drag & drop Gallery component from Media.

2) Then you have to click on '+' to add the Gallery Video which it supports both Vimeo & Youtube.

But the problem is it's a Video Carousal we can modify by using CSS based on our requirement.

  • OP is asking to use also Facebook video in one component. This is not fullfilling this requirement – Peter Procházka Dec 18 '18 at 11:32
