I have create a video player component in Sitecore jss/react. I have tried with react-player player plugin. It is working fine in disconnected mode but as soon as I deployed it in Sitecore, it is neither working in Sitecore Experience Editor nor on live site.

Is it possible to video component in Sitecore jss/react?

I have implemented a video component without using any react plugin. It supports both Youtube and Vimeo. The code snippet is very small. Please see below


Here I retrieve the videoUrl from Sitecore Item which should be of the embedding type. You can also retrieve the videoUrl from a GraphQL. Below are examples of the urls





To get the Embedded URL, you can retrieve it by clicking on Share button and then select the embed part. See screenshot below
