  1. Greetings!

    Just one question. Please don't make me go to the developer's site. That's really painful.
    Rev slider came with my WordPress X Theme template. Slider version 4.3.8
    Won't upload video (Video not Found!) as per your instructions. Updates are ridiculously complicated for a novice. Do I need to purchase a newer version?

    If any urge to give me advice moves you, I'd really appreciate a suggestion.

    Thank you!


  2. I've done everything I could to bring up a YouTube video. I push "Search" and it continues to say, "Video not found!" Any suggestions? The YouTube ID is: aaAXNZW0iBE
    Embedding is allowed (the setting is set correctly).
    Thanks for your time.

  3. This video is very very helpful.
    I have one doubt.
    In rev slider 5.0+ has any way to Automatically loop to next slide when Finishes the current slide youtube video playing.

  4. For some reason, when I try to hide the controls, the "play" button still comes up on the video and I can pause the video. Is there a way for it to continue to playing and not allow the user to control the video ?

  5. Hello How are you ? Great Videos …..
    Thanks for posting them.
    I would like to ask you something, i am using RV Slider, what i would like to do is to put a video on the slider. Just for mobile version but if i do it this way, i wont look good.
    So what i would like to do its to have a click to watch video .

    Thanks again for you great job

  6. If I'm understanding what you think is not there @3:45 – there is a way – click "edit video". Thanks for the video though..I was looking for a down and dirty way to do a BG Vid quickly. Thought of RevSlider first – did a whole bunch of research only to come BACK to this solution.

  7. First, I just want to thank you for making such great tutorials. Honestly, you are smart, friend, make a killer video that is easy to follow. You have been SO HELPFUL to me as I grow my business. That being said, i need your help. What program are you using to make these awesome presentations? I LOVE IT. I am currently on Webex and it is killing me. My end product (video) doesn't match the quality of the material being presented. Can you give me a few pointers on what your using to record such sharp presentations??

  8. perhaps you can a different tutorial showing how to add a video starting from scratch. don't have all that stuff you show on your screen or know how to create it. no matter what we try we cannot make a video that plays less than full width and of course that looks lousy. and one cannot stop the video, only X out of the page. I want a video in a small box on the page, like a bunch of text boxes and one has video. maybe the theme will not do that but nobody on the internet seems to know how to accomplish this that I have found. Must be other people wanting a smaller video too.

  9. Great how to video. I need to create a how to video for one of my projects. What software do you use? I like the small screen with you talking through the steps. Thank you in advance!

  10. HI, I was wondering if there was a way to bypass having to place a cover image when using a video on a slide? I would love to have the video run as soon as page loads :)

  11. hi is there an updated video please as my slider rev looks nothing like this one, and also when im adding a layer and a video one im entering the url but its saying its invalid and there is no video?

  12. Is there a way to just add an audio track, no video – for example, like a voice-over track? If the audio needs to change for each slide, does this mean I have to create or break up into separate tracks and upload them as videos separately?

  13. Thanks for this great video, I pasted the Youtube ID and I got this message: Video Not Found! Do you have any idea why?
    Thanks in advance

  14. Hi, I have an issue uploading a video to the media library. I get a http error (and nothing else), uploading via ftp is useless since the video won't appear in the library (no matter what changes I make to it's atributes.

    Do you have any hints?

  15. I am also having the same problem as Errol…when I copy and paste the video URL from YouTube, I get a message saying "Video not found."  Any suggestions?

  16. +Kori Ashton and the +WebTegrity team this video is great part of the Rev Slider that makes the plugin so much more powerful and useful.
