We implemented a slide show in our homepage and would like to place a video as one of the sliding images.

  1. Can a slider include a video?
  2. If not, can you toggle between video and slider in the CMS?

Yes, assuming that your slider is powered by a channel, with a distinct custom field group, you could simply add a new field for your video items.

This could either be a text input field where you would paste the URL to a video (which you then turn into an embedded video using a plugin like Antenna), or a Channel Videos field which will generate the embed code for you, or even a text input field where you'd paste a simple YouTube video ID, which you'd then include inside some iframe embed markup in your template.

This assumes of course that whatever javascript you're using for your slider can accommodate video - but that's outside the scope of this site.
