I know that using the revolution slider you can add a video slider but I was wondering if there’s a way to do it in the front page itself. I was thinking of uploading my video to youtube or vimeeo and embed it. Is this possible?
Yes, you can add slider shortcode into text widget and it should be displayed. Also you will have to add code below to your functions.php file or use Code Snippets plugin (it is easier) to add the code.
