How to Add a Video in the Module

In the Video Gallery module settings, you have two options for adding a video: uploading it directly to your website or adding a video from a URL.

This setting allows you to upload an MP4 video file directly or enter a YouTube URL to embed a video from YouTube.

Choose a Video MP4 File: This option allows you to upload an MP4 video file directly from your device.

Insert From URL: With this option, you can add a video to your gallery by providing the URL of the video hosted online. This includes videos hosted on platforms like YouTube or Vimeo, allowing you to seamlessly integrate external video content into your gallery.
