Next, click Layout under Channel customization. You now have two options: 

The first one is to choose a video for unsubscribed visitors (a channel trailer). To add this type of video, click ADD next to Channel trailer for people who haven't subscribed. 

The second option is to choose a video to highlight for your subscribers. To do so, click ADD next to Featured video for returning subscribers. You will get to choose between various options, such as setting any specific video to feature, whether it is from your channel or not.
