Setting Native Unit
Native unit offers an easy way to include your videos’ metadata into the layout.
Video title and description are displayed on one of the player’s sides, depending on the selected text position option in the settings. Another handy feature is a click-through "Powered by" logo - a perfect tool for promotional purposes.
Setting Playlist Unit
A recognizable, classic design with thumbnail preview of the playlist at the bottom of the unit.
Setting options offer flexibility in customizing the thumbnail preview. Hide time removes the duration of the videos displayed by default. Force title and force play button options will display video titles in thumbs and add a play button to each.
Another feature is adding a logo to your thumbnail recommendations. All you need to do is paste the logo URL, set the width and height and choose the position.
Setting Mid-Article Unit
A content unit most similar to the playlist unit. Here, you can choose between two thumbnail positions - right and left. In addition to hide time, force title and force play button features that override the default settings of displaying video duration and not showing titles or play buttons in playlist suggestions, force thumbs option allows you to force thumbnail display on mobile devices. You can also add your logo to thumb.
Setting Simple Unit
In combination with a sticky player, this unit is a great fit if you wish to improve a specific video’s visibility. Video title can be positioned to the right or left and you can choose whether to stick the player on the top or bottom of the page.
