Create a standard page in the Page Editor

Use the Shopify Page Editor to create a page. Use a table with one row only and have two columns, a video in each one. For multiple rows, create a new table only one row in each table. The reason for that is the videos will line-up better when only using one row. Use the video embed code provided on YouTube or Vimeo for the video content.
