Embedding video in product and main pages

Hi I'm wondering if there's a way to embed videos that are bigger than 20MB to the product page and main page.

I know you can use Shopify CDN to upload videos of under 20MB, and you have vimeo and youtube options, but if I were to follow the same instructions for the shopify cdn method but use my own cdn link, will it still work?

Hey @aceduck,

 

I came across your post and yes, unfortunately, Shopify doesn't allow direct uploading of videos above 20 MB limit. 

But you can always use YouTube and Vimeo link of any size without any restriction.

Hope it helps!

Yes I understand that but my question is, if I have a video in my AWS s3
DB, can I embed it on shopify without publishing the video on YouTube or
video?

Yes, simply paste in the Amazon S3 Video URL

As far as I know you can embed a YouTube video in the product page only, there is no way to add a video from external service.

There is this code that can be embedded in the product page code or the HTML RTE editor I suppose (adapt to suit):

 

<video controls="controls" style="max-width: 100%; height: auto;">
  <source src="your_url_goes_here" type="video/mp4" />
Your browser does not support our video.
</video>
