Uploading A Video Directly to Squarespace, A step-by-step guide

Firstly login to your Squarespace account and select the website you want to edit.

Once done, you'll enter the "Site Dashboard." Click on the "Edit" button.

Before we can upload a video, we must add a button element on the site.

Click on "Add Block" and select "Button." Next, tap the "Settings" icon and select "File." Once done, you can upload the video file from your device.

However, remember that this method only lets you upload files upto 20 Mb. Once you have uploaded the video, click on "Save." You should see the video URL in the link area of your button.

We are listing a code necessary to upload your video file successfully.

<video style="width: 100%" controlsList="nodownload"


<source type="video/mp4" >

<body oncontextmenu="return false;">


Now copy the link address, as you will need it for the finishing steps.

Next, replace the XXXXXXXXX in the above-mentioned code with your video link.

The next step involves embedding the code on your Squarespace website.

Go to the section where you want to insert the video and choose "Code" from the menu.

Paste the edited code with the video URL into the editor. Once done, Squarespace will reload and showcase your video on the site.

And that's all you need to do to upload a video file on your Squarespace website.

Our Conclusion

Even though Squarespace is a highly reliable website builder, not being able to upload a video file directly is certainly a downside. However, with the above-mentioned tutorial, you can overcome the handicap and make an appealing website with actual video content.
