django CMS Video

pypi build coverage

django CMS Video is a set of plugins for django CMS that allow you to publish video content on your site (using an HTML5 player by default, but you can override this in your own templates if required).

It uses files managed by Django Filer.

This addon is compatible with Divio Cloud and is also available on the django CMS Marketplace for easy installation.



This is a an open-source project. We'll be delighted to receive your feedback in the form of issues and pull requests. Before submitting your pull request, please review our contribution guidelines.

We're grateful to all contributors who have helped create and maintain this package. Contributors are listed at the contributors section.

One of the easiest contributions you can make is helping to translate this addon on Transifex.


See REQUIREMENTS in the file for additional dependencies:

python django djangocms

  • Django Filer 1.7 or higher

Make sure django-filer is installed and configured appropriately.


For a manual install:

  • run pip install djangocms-video
  • add djangocms_video to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • run python migrate djangocms_video


Note that the provided templates are very minimal by design. You are encouraged to adapt and override them to your project's requirements.

This addon provides a default template for all instances. You can provide additional template choices by adding a DJANGOCMS_VIDEO_TEMPLATES setting:

    ('feature', _('Featured Version')),

You'll need to create the feature folder inside templates/djangocms_video/ otherwise you will get a template does not exist error. You can do this by copying the default folder inside that directory and renaming it to feature.

MP4, WEBM and OGV files are allowed by default. We recommend adding all 3 source files for full browser compatibility. You can change the default setting by overriding:


The plugin detects YouTube URLs using a regular expression and canonicalizes them to //{} where the placeholder is replaced by the video id.

The canonical URL can be reconfigured with a configuration setting:
