Hey @Jermpaquette, I believe you spoke to our support team but wanted to follow up here as well for posterity.

Yes! You definitely can upload .webm files within Builder, as well as .gif, .mov, and .mp4 files. In fact, there are a few ways you can achieve this.

To start with, if you are setting up a Model, you can easily create a video field as part of said model. Simply select the File type from the dropdown, and you will see all file types available within Builder. If you select the relevant file types, whenever a user adds a video to that model, those file types will be available and accepted

If you are building a page or section, simply drag a video component, (Builder has one by default, or you can use a custom component that includes a video) and you should be able to choose the video file to upload from the UI. Once uploaded you can select the various options as desired.

You can see a gif how to upload here, on Giphy

Finally, you can also simply upload a video file at Builder.io: Drag and drop page builder and CMS

This will give you a URL to our Builder CDN, which you can then use as the video link within the component in Builder. To update that URL, simple right click the video and select JSON view. From here, you can paste the video URL in the “video” option of the Video component JSON.

Hope that helps and please reach out if you should have any further questions!
