[@TODO: Explain each option]
Videos coming from popular video services, such as YouTube, have have their own dedicated elements in Vev. You’ll easily recognize such elements when you spot them. They all operate similarly but can have different configuration options.
If there isn’t an already existing element for the video service you’re using, you can use the “Embed Anything” element ([@TODO: Link to article]). You can also create a custom element using the Code Editor.
