Best way to incorporate video carousel or video slider with Total CMS Blogs?

Hi everyone!

What’s the best way to incorporate a video carousel or video slider into Total CMS Blog? I am using a TCMS blog to power a client’s “case studies” pages and they would like to be able to add a slider or carousel of videos to each post.

Is this possible with Video Wall or Impact?

Here is a demo of Gallery Stack using the Total CMS blog integration:

I guess it is also possible with Impact.

Thanks for the reply, Jannis!

So in the back end, it looks like the user would upload photos and videos via the regular Total CMS Blog Gallery stack and then they would appear in the Gallery stack…is that correct?

Hi, that’s correct. Cheers, Jannis

If you wanted actual videos inside a blog post, then you could use the Extra Content field to store a URL to a Vimeo or YouTube playlist. Then you could use the blog macros into my Video Wall stack to insert the videos onto the blog post page.

Please don’t misunderstand: Gallery Stack does not play videos. Therefore Video Wall is the best option :+1:

Ok, just want to make sure I fully understand before purchasing Video Wall. So the client would paste a link to a YouTube playlist into the Extra Content field, and then I would add a Video Wall stack to the Blog Post page and paste the Extra Content macro into the Video Wall stack settings?

That should totally work
