  • In toujou, media files must not exceed a size of 8 MB.
  • Each file only needs to be uploaded once to your filelist.

Advice for header videos:
  • Be sure to use a moderate file size as this may affect the performance of your website.
  • When embedded, platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo insert links and suggestions to the screen that may seem out of place in the header. For this, the inclusion of a video as a media content element might be advisable.
