TL;DR: some features do, some don't
We hope to create a native Wix application for SmartVideo in the future, but for now, here's what works and what doesn't when using SmartVideo on a Wix website.
Features that currently work 🙂
- YouTube auto conversions
- Vimeo auto conversions
- Background video auto conversions
- Standard video tag conversions (delivers video via SmartVideo, but does not swap player)
Features that definitely don't work right now 🙁
How to install SmartVideo on a Wix site
Note: to install SmartVideo on your Wix site, you'll need a paid plan. Free Wix sites do not allow the addition of Custom scripts in the dashboard.
To get started, you'll need to visit the Configuration tab in your Swarmify Dashboard. Configure your script with your preferred settings, then press Copy to Clipboard to copy the script.
From the dashboard of your Wix site, click Settings, then click Tracking Tools.
From the Tracking Tools page, click Custom. Then, paste your SmartVideo script into the Paste the code snippet here: text field. Give the script a name ("SmartVideo" works nicely here 😉) and choose whether the script should load on all pages or specific pages. If you choose for SmartVideo to load on all pages, please be sure to choose Load code on each new page in the drop-down field. Under Place Code in, choose Head. Then click Apply.
SmartVideo has now been installed on your Wix site!
How to add a SmartVideo to your Wix page
As you can tell from the list at the top of this page, the only way to add a SmartVideo to your Wix website (at the moment) is to make use of SmartVideo's nifty auto conversion feature. If you have YouTube or Vimeo videos, SmartVideo will auto convert these for you without any extra work on your part.
The same goes for standard Wix videos and background videos, except that SmartVideo will not swap out the player. The video will be delivered by SmartVideo, but playback will occur in the typical Wix player.
You can add/upload a video from just about any third-party source (including your own computer) to your Wix Site Files and then place that video on your page. SmartVideo will then convert that video and serve it from our Global Delivery Network.
