Set Video

There are a few ways you can set a video source in your app:

You can upload a video file as an asset in your project. Be careful of the Thunkable 50 MB app size limit if you choose to upload a file to your project.

Enter URL to choose video to display

Enter the URL of the video you want to show in your project.
The link has to end in .mp4, .mov, …so videos uploaded to YouTube and other video sharing sites may not work.
