Many people use YouTube videos in their WordPress site, because they load fast and watchable on any device. Thanks to Smart Slider 3 you can create a nice looking, responsive YouTube slider for free. There are many options to configure the videos to behave the way you want them to. For instance, you can make the videos play automatically, or to loop in your free video slider. At each YouTube layer you have other useful settings. For instance you can adjust the video quality. Or you can make the video start again after the visitor has changed the slide and has come back to the video. Additionally, this free YouTube slider has another interesting feature: the thumbnail navigation.
A thumbnail navigation like this is easy to create. You can quickly add a YouTube video with the Add Video feature. It adds the title and cover image of the video to the slide title and thumbnail. This makes it possible to create nice looking navigation elements for your slider. For instance, you can create a nice thumbnail control with or without images. What’s even better, this small play icon you can see on the thumbnails is a simple setting. So you don’t have to edit the thumbnail images just to have a play icon on them. All you need to do is to change the thumbnail type to “video”.
Would you like to add this video slider to your WordPress site? Then download the free Smart Slider 3 and import it with one click. To have the demo display your own videos, simply click on Add slide and select Video, then paste the YouTube URL. If you prefer hosting your own videos, or use Vimeo videos instead, then I have good news for you. You can change this slider in any ways you want. For example, you can add videos from other source than YouTube. Just be aware that the self hosted videos are supported in the Pro version only.
