Dependencies

  • jQuery
  • Form Library (varies by provider)

An Important Note On HTML Structure

Because this plugin relies on placing an overlay on top of the video player - it is highly recommended that you implement a wrapper that forces a specific aspect ratio. Leadvids does not add a wrapper around the embedded players. The reasoning for this is because the jQuery .wrap() function causes the iframe element to reload - which is bad for multiple reasons (namely performance). Therefore, use something such as the Responsive Embed component in Bootstrap 3 (https://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/components/#responsive-embed) to format your video embed code.

Failure to do this will result in strange and unpredictable behavior - you have been warned.

Quick Example (using HubSpot)

<!-- HTML Markup -->
<div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9">
  <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/xxxxxx" class="myLeadvid" allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>
      
<!-- Dependencies -->
<!-- jQuery -->
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<!-- HubSpot Forms Library -->
<script src="//js.hsforms.net/forms/v2.js"></script>

<!-- jquery.leadvids.js -->
<script src="/path/to/jquery.leadvids.js"></script>
<script>
// Globally update the form provider defaults
$.fn.leadvids.defaults = {
  provider: {
    type: 'hubspot',
    id: 2660377
  }
};

// Initialize a leadvids collection
$('.myLeadvid').leadvids({
  formId: '6f7e41d0-60e1-42e1-a2cd-7f0fcf07d734',
  freepass: true,
  freepassButtonClass: 'btn btn-link',
  freepassLimit: 1,
  submitButtonClass: 'btn btn-block btn-primary',
  threshold: 10,
  thresholdUnit: '%'
});
</script>

Data API

Leadvids allows for option overrides through HTML5 data-attributes. All data attributes are namespaced with a data-leadvids key:

e.g:

  • data-leadvids-form-id
  • data-leadvids-freepass
  • data-leadvids-threshold
  • ...etc

Note: overiding the freepassTotal and provider options is current not supported.

What video providers are supported?

At this moment, Leadvids supports the following video providers:

  • Vimeo

Additional providers will be added in the future.

What form providers are supported?

Leadvids supports the following embedded form providers:

  • HubSpot
  • Marketo

Browser & Device Support

Mobile

In an effort to provide the best user experience, Leadvids will not function when the viewport width is less than 768px. This is for 2 reasons:

  1. Certain mobile browsers (such as iOS) automatically play the video in fullscreen mode.
  2. The players would be too small to provide a usable interface.

Tablet & Desktop

  • IE 11+

Support may vary depending on capabilities of each video and form provider.
