Hello everyone! Today's fun experiment; using and implementing images straight from Youtube in tandem with Webflow CMS to better contextualize posts!
How'd I do it, you ask? Simple! Custom code, mixed with Webflow CSS, in which is injected a background-image referencing the link for the HD youtube image from the post-specific youtube video.
Very much a WIP. One thing I want to improve is the video experience on the posts page. I had to put the video in a lightbox because, on larger viewports where the video took over the whole hero, you couldn't scroll past the video because it's an iframe. I'm currently searching for a better solution for this issue, so if you have one I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
