Video Slider Module

Divi makes it easy to add a Video Slider to your page. This is a great way to organize collections of videos from just about any source. The video gallery also allows you to customize video thumbnail images and play button to add a clear, custom style to your embeds.

How to Add a Video Slider Module to Your Page

Before you can add a video slider module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Enable Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

Locate the video slider module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type “video slider” and then hit enter to automatically find and add the video slider module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: ContentDesign and Advanced.

Populating the Video Slider with Content

Before adjusting too many settings it’s probably a good idea to go ahead and populate your video slider with video slides. That way when you make changes you’ll actually be able to see how they affect the end result. To add a new video slide you will need to click the + Add New Item link.

Here you can either upload a .mp4 or Webm file. You can also insert a video url from YouTube. When you’ve either uploaded your file or added the YouTube link simply click the green check button in the bottom right hand corner and you will return to the video slider module’s main content tab. Repeat this process for each video you’d like to add.

Use Case Example: Adding a Video Slider to showcase tutorial videos for a Course Page

For this example, I’m going to show you how to use a video slider to showcase a series of tutorial videos for a online course page..

Let’s get started.

Use the visual builder to add a Regular Section with a fullwidth (1 column) row. Then add a Video Slider Module to the row.

The first thing you need to do when the Video Slider Settings modal pops up is select + Add New Item in order to add your first video to the module.

Update the Individual Video Settings as follows:

Content tab
Video MP4/URL: [enter URL or upload video]
Video Webm: [enter URL or upload video]
Image Overlay URL: [insert custom image to serve as overlay]

Design tab

Slider Arrows Color: Light

Save Settings

Repeat this step to add the rest of the videos needed for the unit.

Once all of the videos and custom image overlays have been added, go back to the Video Slider Settings and update the options as follows:

Content tab

Arrows: Show Arrows
Slider Controls: Use Thumbnail Track
Display Image Overlays on Main Video: Show
