When you can embed Youtube video in WordPress there is scope to show videos related to your site. The video can also act as an added descriptor for your WordPress form. Thus giving more clarity to your users about your site.

Nowadays, many WordPress forms have Youtube videos on them as a demonstration of what the site has in store for its user. Many online stores showcase their products or put up videos with customer testimonials. Generally, site builders use a WordPress YouTube plugin to add a video on their forms.

RegistrationMagic is one such form building plugin that can create dynamic forms with WordPress video on it. It embeds a YouTube widget on your form so that you can add any video related to your site or product.

Along with different widgets, RegistrationMagic also allows users to add data fields to build a form.

Fill the Label field with any text, this will only appear on the backend of your form. Next, users can customize the height, width of the player and also select the video URL of their choice. The AutoPlay option will play the video automatically as users land on the form page. There is an added advantage to play other videos of your site by turning on the Related Videos option. Checking the Repeat checkbox assigns the video to run on loop as soon as it ends. You can also apply a CSS Class defined in the Appearance or the theme CSS file.
