This template should be added to articles about individual video essays but not metavids which should use Template:Vid.

The template automatically includes the page in the Meta on Video category. Please also manually add additional categories if applicable.

See Help:Fanworks for more on choosing which infobox template to use.

To embed this template on a page, copy & paste the code below to the top of the new page:



  • fanworktitle = title of the essay
  • creator = author(s)
  • dates = when it was posted/published
  • medium = online, print, woodcut, stone carving, etc.
  • length = the runtime of the video
  • footage = where the footage comes from, if you know and it will fit in the info box.
  • fandom = name of the fandom (e.g. science fiction fandom, slash, Gundam Wing, etc.)
  • topic = topic of the essay
  • url = where it's posted online, if applicable
  • imagename= filename (as in, "Example.jpg") of the image for the video, if you have one. If you leave this blank, the infobox will just omit the image and caption.
  • imagesize= image width, which will default to 100px if you leave it blank; 300px is a good size for image caps.
  • imagecaption= caption or annotation for the image. If you leave this blank the infobox will just omit the caption.
