Unlock the potential of visual storytelling with the Scrollytelling JWPlayer section in Vev. This powerful component empowers you to narrate compelling stories using high-definition video content, supported by the robust capabilities of JWPlayer—the leading video player on the web.

Note: When you add a Scrollytelling JWPlayer section for the first time, the editor will automatically create two sections. After you edit e.g. background image of the first section, you'll see the second section in the layers panel. To unleash their full potential, it's recommended to use two or more Scrollytelling JWPlayer sections in sequence.
