    • Yes – This option is recommended for all entry-level players as they can struggle when having to render the entire canvas for every video frame.
    • No – Video will respect the layers and other elements can be moved on top of the video. This requires a mid-level player as the entire canvas has to be rendered for every frame of video.
    • Yes (native) – This option will be the default for 4K videos. On Android devices it will launch Android’s native video player at the position of the video, non-android devices behave the same as with the ‘yes’ option. Please refer to the 4K limitations on the Android section in the FAQ.
  • Positioning – Change the position of the video (Or simply drag and drop it)

Pixabay placeholder image
If Pixabay servers have trouble loading the thumbnail for the video in the editor, they return a placeholder image instead.
