The Custom Content Video Slide Type is one of 4 Custom Content Slide Types to choose from. The slide type allows you to paste a URL from Vimeo, YouTube, or Dailymotion and then it extracts the metadata and allows you to edit the extracted info. When adding a video, the title, description, thumbnail, and internal video data are captured. The information is then immediately filled in the text areas below the video URL/Chooser and can be edited.
Add Video URL
This is a text field where you may add a URL for the video page that you'd like to use the video from. A simple URL such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtWez5u8uEg should work fine (short URLs are also supported). When the "Update" button is pressed, the video info and thumbnail should be fetched and filled automatically.
Choose Text Type
You have 3 options to choose from for the layout of the text slide type: Caption, Body Text and None. These options are quite self explanatory, but may change slightly depending on the lens being used, and more importantly, the size of the deck in question.
Add a URL to the slide, the title by default gets linked, which you can toggle to link the whole slide with in the deck Options.
Set the title of the slide/content
Text area with WYSIWYG editor to add and edit your video description.
Specify how images are scaled in your SlideDeck:
- Do Not Scale Images - Do not attempt to scale images at all. Images will be center aligned on the slide.
- Scale Proportionally and Crop - Scale the image so the entire slide area is covered and crop as appropriate. This works for most situations and is the default, but sometimes if your image aspect ratio does not match it may produce odd results.
- Scale Proportionally and Do Not Crop - Scale the image so the entire image fits within the slide area. This will show black bars to the sides of the image that do not fit in the SlideDeck's aspect ratio.
Change the position of the caption overlay for the Caption layout to the top or bottom of the slide.
Body Text Position
Change the position of the body text overly for the Body Text layout to the left or right side of the slide.
