Video > Photos

Recipes are a visual thing. While the instructions and ingredients are important, so too are the photos that go along with it. People love to skim through recipes, checking the photos to see if it’s something they’d want to make.

However, photos only tell half the story. A video on the other hand, well, that tells the story twice.

With Recipe Hero Video, all you need to do is optionally add a URL to a video that you’d like to replace the featured image with. Your gallery is still optionally displayed, and nothing else changes.

It’s responsive, flawless and you can even display videos on recipe archives.

Videos (and more) from anywhere

We didn’t want to back you into a corner and demand you used a certain video hosting site for your videos. That’d be unfair.

Instead, we worked tirelessly to ensure that Recipe Hero Video supported countless options, and not just videos – anything’s possible.

For instructions, too!

We wanted to make sure that every bit of your ingredient was consistent, clear and beautiful.

As such, you can also embed custom videos for each and every step / instruction in a recipe too.

Optionally just leave the field blank to use an image, so you can even mix a combination of images and videos for your instructions.
