Last updated on January 5, 2023 @ 7:41 pm

There are two ways to add a video to your Wix website:

Method 1 – Use Wix Video:


Exciting update! We've collaborated with Wix to offer WBI users with a free plan for all website creation needs - Explore the details here.

1. Go to the Wix App Market and search for “Wix Video.”

2. Click Add to Site. Once the app is added, you will see a video icon in your site’s editor.

3. Click on the video icon and then click Add Video. You can either upload a video from your computer or enter a URL.

4. Once the video is added, you can resize it and move it around on your page.

Method 2 – Embed a video from another site:

1. Find the embed code for the video you want to add to your site.

This is usually located under the Share or Embed options.

For example, on YouTube, click Share > Embed.
On Vimeo, click Share > + Show options.
On Wistia, click Share this video > Embed options.

2. Copy the embed code.

For example:

<iframe src=""  
width="560" height="315" frameborder="0"  

3. In your Wix Editor, click Add > More > Embeds & Media > Custom Embed.

4. Paste the embed code in the box that appears and click Apply.

Your video will now appear on your site.

Adding a video to your Wix website is easy and can be done in just a few steps!

PRO TIP: If you’re planning to embed a video in Wix, there are a few things you should know in advance. First, Wix only supports certain video file formats, so you’ll need to make sure your video is in one of those formats. Second, Wix doesn’t allow you to embed videos from YouTube or other video sharing websites; you’ll need to upload the video file directly to your Wix account. And finally, Wix places some restrictions on where you can place embedded videos on your website; they can only be placed in certain areas and not all themes support embedded videos.
