Hey Saee,

Mike here from Shopify, you can use our Debut theme as indicated here:

However, there are other themes but depends if the section code has been implimented or not? Or custom coding the content at the top of your theme could be another option. Depending on your level of experience with coding you could easily just drop to the theme.liquid on any theme and drop a simple Youtube embed snippet in there. Remember an HTML page is top down, so your slideshow would be at the top. Create a DIV container, within the main theme set its dimensions to the size you want and embed the video in that container. Style it with some CSS. If you need some help with that look at tutorials here: http://www.w3schools.com/.

Things to consider with this approach would be to address the possible video on other viewports like mobile or tablet. With some simple CSS and HTML you could place this video essentially anywhere you wanted. If you do go this route mind you, work on a duplicate as to not effect your live store. Once satisfied of its operation swap it out with the publish button.

The last option, would be to talk with an expert. https://experts.shopify.com.

Answering your question, any theme will work really but if you want one that has it already in the code would be that Debut theme I had mentioned.

Cheers,

-Mike A.

HI!  This is exacty what I am looking to do, add video to a slideshow.

When I look at your screenshot it shows the ability to add a video to slideshow. Perfect!

However, I can do this.  I click to edit my slideshow I only see images, not videos.  I am on the debut theme.  Have not bought it yet.  Still on trial on an unpublished site.

What am I doing wrong?  Thanks!
