This guide describes setting up the Video section.
Use the section to add a video to a store page from a URL. With videos, you can share information about your brand with customers, describe products, or welcome customers to your store, etc.
The previous image shows a Video section on a store's homepage. In the upper right, the section menu's Link selector contains a link to the store's Coats & Jackets collection page. The Label box contains the text Shop coats & jackets. On the left, the Label text is added as button label text. Selecting the button opens the page specified in the Link selector.
For general guidance with modifying sections, refer to Sections overview, and Shopify help: Sections and blocks
