WebFlow - Helping Zapier work with Video fields in the WebFlow CMS

WebFlow's CMS supports video fields, however there are currently [ Nov 2018 ] two key limitations;

  1. The designer offers very limited Embed configuration to CMS-bound Video elements. In particular, you cannot control settings such as start position, end position, or whether a competitor's related videos are shown at the end of your video.
  2. The video field cannot be updated through the API, which includes Zapier integrations. This means that automating CMS data feeds that contain videos is not possible when you use CMS Video fields.

Fortunately, there is a way around both of these limitations.
