Complete the fields as described below:

  • Name – Enter the name of your video.
  • Description – Enter the description of your video.
  • Content URL – Enter the URL for the video file, i.e. MP4 or MOV file.
  • Embed URL – Enter the URL for the video player, i.e. YouTube or Vimeo URL.
  • Upload Date – Enter the date the video was uploaded.
  • Family Friendly – Select whether the video is family friendly.
  • Thumbnail URL – Select or upload an image that represents your article. You can also paste in the URL for an image into this field. By default, this is set to your featured image.

Once you’ve completed the fields, click the Add Schema button to save them.

You can also save this as a template which you can use on other videos by clicking the Save Schema as Template button.
