Video in timeline

I am using the aThemes timeline widget on Sydney Pro.

If I use Event Description > Add Media > Insert from URL > paste a video from YouTube, the preview shows up in the edit widget, however only the embed shortcode appears in the page.

Previewing the page does not show the video.

Is it possible to embed video from YouTube into the timeline?


First thanks for using our theme!

Instead of embed the video, please try using the shortcode [video]. For example:

[video src=""]

Add the code above inside the event description.

Here’s the possible options/attributes for the shortcode:

And if you want to hide the controls, like play button, volume control, etc… Please add the given custom CSS code below at Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

.mejs-controls {
    display: none !important;
    visibility: hidden !important;

We hope this helps!

Please try that and let us know if you need further assistance.

Kind Regards,
