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.

    This is a must have, Wix gives this for free. Webflow's pricing and limitations are outrages, the platform could have been much more successful I am sure.

    Yes, Keep the 4mb limit but add Mp4 or webm PLEASE! I may have to abandon my site and WebFlow over this. GIFs suck for video use 256 colors, big chunky, noisy once compressed....

    Also baffled that this isn't a feature yet.

    Not a deal breaker but why isn't this a feature? Video is a web compatible, viable, common and arguably central UX asset. Thanks for the Lottie library and generally a platform that is hand's down the best available...just one more step in the assets department and your bases are covered. Please?

    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.
