Single Media Content

When and how to use the Single Media Content component 

This component can be used to display either an image or a video depending on the display settings (see more details below).

Adding in videos

Nb. This process is the same for the Single Media Section component,

If you are choosing the video option, you need to make sure the video has been uploaded to YouTube and you have the correct URL.

UWE Bristol have a social media channel on YouTube which the Social Media Team manage, so you can ask them about an queries including uploading new videos - contact Justin Iriajen:

Adding the video ID to the component

To add the video into the component you will need to make a note of the YouTube ID, which is the last part of the URL after the = sign.

For example: 
YouTube ID: fnFd3eYhzOk

Next, find the relevant field within Content Editor view for the component. This is towards the bottom of all the other fields. Then add the video's YouTube ID:

Changing the component display settings for videos

Once you have created the Single Media Content component and added in the YouTube ID, you need to add the component to the relevant page in Experience Editor. In order to display the video, you will need to change the display settings for the component from 'Image' to 'YouTube':
