The user interface of the Thrive editor has been upgraded! Please, check out the changes here, before proceeding.

The Video element in Thrive Architect allows you to add a self-hosted video to your page. In this way, you can add a video that is hosted on a different website than just the default ones (YouTube, Wistia, or Vimeo).

We have created a separate article that explains in-depth how you can use each video option.
