The "HTML5 Video" custom field gives you the ability to display an HTML5 Video at your frontend just by filling out the URL or the relative path of the video file.
The "HTML5 Video" custom field provides you all of the customization options of the HTML5 Video Specification.
As you can see from the screenshot above, after choosing the correct Type, you can customize your player however you'd like.
Let's see what each option does.
