Configure product video

What’s in this topic

In Magento 2 on product pages you can add video from external resources (currently, from YouTube and Vimeo). Video is added in Admin when creating or editing a product. Certain product video options can be set in the config.xml configuration file. These settings are not theme-specific.

Configure product video options

You can set the following product video options:

Option Description Type Default
play_if_base Play automatically on page load. Boolean 0
(video is not played on page load)
show_related Display related videos. Boolean 0
(related videos are not displayed)
video_auto_restart Auto re-play video. Boolean 0
(video is not automatically replayed)

You can configure these options in your custom module’s config.xml file.

Example:

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Store:etc/config.xsd">
    <default>
        <catalog>
            <product_video>
                <play_if_base>1</play_if_base>
                <show_related>1</show_related>
                <video_auto_restart>1</video_auto_restart>
            </product_video>
        </catalog>
    </default>
</config>

For the sake of compatibility, upgradability and easy maintenance, do not edit the default Magento code. Instead add your customizations in a separate module.
