Video Field Type

Renders a Video Selector component inside the block.

The type we would use inside the schema’s field_meta property to render this field is “video”: "type": "video"

If you haven’t already, we suggest you read the “model.json file” and “Field Types” pages before continuing.

Minimum Schema needed to create the field

"video": {
  "type": "object",
  "field_meta": {
    "type": "video",
    "label": "Self hosted Video"
  "default": {
    "src": "",
    "id": null

This snippet of code will generate a Video Selector. The field name will be “video”, its label will be “Video” and by default, it won’t have a selected video.

What it would look like inside the block in the editor.

Rendering field’s data on the front-end:

We would use the "src" property that’s present inside the “default” object.
In latte, it would look something like this.


Additional / Optional field_meta properties

Besides the optional properties help (explained on Field Types page), and col (explained on model.json page), this field type doesn’t have its own optional properties at this point.
