Hi Team,

Trying to add a you tube short of my Product to my store home page. A message as below comes:  

"This link is invalid. Try pasting a complete YouTube/Vimeo link"

Tried to reupload the vidoe to youtube to come as YouTube Link not YouTube short. Youtube turns to YouTube shorts which Shopify does not accept the link.

What is the workaround with this please to add Youtube Short to my home page or a different way of uploading the video to youtube so Shopify accepts the link?

Please advise.

Ofcourse, first you need to upload the video to shopify :
Go to your shopify store admin area and choose from the left sidebar content then files and upload your file, then copy the link of the video.

-the next step is to go to the theme editor and choose Add section then choose custom liquid and add this code :

<style>
video {
width: 100%;
height: auto;
display: block;
margin: 0 auto;
}
</style>
<video muted autoplay playsinline loop>
    <source src="your video link"
                  type="video/mp4">
</video>


instead of "your video link", put the link that you just copied.

No. This is the snapshot.  Am I in the right place or the link has been removed from my Theme?
