Elementor video sliders, will it be good or bad?
SEO will argue that it has no impact on your site's performance on search engine result pages(SERPs) but web developers will say it is the best way to coalesce lots of information into a single section on a web page. While there is no definite stamp on this question when it comes to static images, the same view does not apply to video sliders.
Therefore, my answer to the above question will be; sliders can be a great way to add some extra flair to your website, but they're not always the right choice. Start by thinking about what your users are looking for and how each page of your website can help them achieve their goals.
If you are looking for a robust solution to creating a video slider in Elementor, then Carousel Anything should be more than enough because of the so many design options possible with the addons. But because Elementor Pro has a widget that solves this problem, I recommend using the media carousel widget that comes with Elementor Pro.
