Upload video to Asset Manager (Designer, CMS and Editor)

Not everyone wants to host their videos on Vimeo and Youtube.

For instance, on a portfolio you might want to loop and mp4, ogg or a webm file. Regular GIFs just don't cut it. They're large, have terrible quality and lack things like controls and autoplay.

As you can't embed html in the CMS editor, I'm requesting better support of these modern video formats. Surfacing the html5 video controls as settings to be used in the video component.

    It blows my mind that I can't upload video assets to Webflow. Makes me wonder if there is any point continuing to use the platform.

    You can for example host your Website on GitHub with Stacket: https://stacket.app/ and then upload it in your GitHub Repo without any limitations and then it will appear at yourdomain.com/your-custom-file.pdf

    How is this not available? I'm forced to embed video from a third party unless it is a background video component. smh.

    This feature should be a priority. It would save so much extra time and effort.

    also assumed this was already a feature and was astounded when I discovered it wasn’t. Why is GIFs when you can use an MP4 that looks better and is an eighth of the file size? I feel like this isn’t even a day’s worth of work to implement.

    Is this on Webflow's schedule to implement yet?

    This is such a basic must feature

    Hard to believe this is real. Went to add a video to my assets in the CMS editor and was shocked to learn that we can only add videos hosted elsewhere (YouTube, Vimeo, etc). This is awful.

    Update: the background video element actually works with my use case and the nice thing is the upload limit (30MB) is more than the usual image limit.

    Trying to build my portfolio right now and I'm running into this exact road block. I have my video files and all I want to do is place them in my page. I don't want any play bars and I don't want to create a whole new media channel just to put everything onto my own site.

    Oh serious, we've spend a lot of effort to create these videos, there must be a way to upload these? Liking webflow a lot, but this is really bad :s It's a necessity for explaining features on a modern web page.

    I can't believe such a basic functionality is not implemented.

    I spent 4 hours polishing my 0.5mb, 2 seconds video, just to realise I can't actually use it.

    It makes absolutely no sense to allow uploading of a 4mb photo, but not an half a megabyte video. Just why?!

    We're now deep into 2020 with no sign of this on the horizon. I'm half-using Webflow and half-using Elementor Pro with Wordpress and Elementor has Webflow easily beat here.

    Agreed. This is the only reason I am not transitioning from Semplice to Webflow.

    Full HTML controls for audio and video is a must.
