Video player is most suitable to present a movie with a linear story such as tutorials, recipes, etc.
The video player can play uploaded videos but also external links like YT, FB or Vimeo
The video is 'scale to fit' in the bounding box, i.e. the video keeps its height and width ratio.
The Video player has video controls such as video scrubber, full screen mode and volume.
VideoBox is best used as a design element - as a fully stretched video on a container or a section, or as a decorative motion element
Best practice instead of using gifs is to use VideoBox with a video set to ‘loop’. This way the quality and the performance are much better
VideoBox has big range of design controls:
Full control over the size, position and color of the play button
Focal point (as it can be resized not proportionally and scaled to fill)
Flip & rotate function
