Wix Video: Adding Videos to Your Video Library

5 min read
The Wix Video Library is where you manage all the videos you've added to your site. You can upload new videos, delete existing videos, edit video information, and more. 

Use your video library to organize and structure your video content. Group similar content together and set up channels to make it easier for viewers to find the content they want.

As well as displaying your own videos on your site, you can embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook.
Before you begin:
To access your video library, you first need to add Wix Video.

Uploading videos

Upload videos directly from your computer, or from Dropbox or Google Drive. You can upload up to 30 minutes of video for free. If you need to upload more, upgrade to a suitable Premium plan.
Wix Video storage
Wix Video doesn't use storage from your site storage quota. Wix Video uses "video hours", a separate allowance included in your free site or Premium plan. Video hours apply only to videos uploaded to Wix Video; other videos uploaded to your site will use your site storage.

To add a video to your video library:

  1. Go to Video Library in your site's dashboard.
    Note: You can also access your video library by clicking a video in your Editor and then clicking Manage Videos.
  2. Depending on whether you're uploading a video for the first time or adding additional videos, follow the steps below:
    • Uploading your first video: Click Upload Videos.
    • Adding additional videos: Click Add Videos at the top right.
  3. Choose where you want to upload the video from and follow the relevant steps below:
Once you've uploaded your video(s):
  • Click the Edit Video Info icon  to edit a video's info. 
  • Organize your videos and choose what you want to display on your site.

Embedding videos

Wix Video allows you to embed videos from YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. Videos that you embed do not count towards your 30-minute video limit. You cannot sell videos you've embedded.
Note:
It's not possible to embed videos that are not on YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook.
