About Video Background

Supercharge your storefront

The latest fashion in web design is now available for Shopify! Enhance your site showing a video background. It's as simple as:

  • Choosing any public YouTube video or one of our preselected videos
  • Choosing the section of your page where it will be shown

One-click install

Installation could not be easier. It's a one-click process with no coding required.

The video must be a public YouTube video, so if you want to display a private video, you must change the privacy policy to 'public'.

Fully customisable background videos

  • Choose any YouTube video or one from the preselected list
  • Choose the pages where you want to have video backgrounds. You can also display it on your 404 Not Found page
  • Choose the section where it will be shown (header, footer, whole page, etc)
  • Choose optional padding around the video
  • Choose the video opacity
  • You can also mute the audio. Please note that only muted videos will auto-play on the latest versions of Chrome or iOS devices
  • Choose if the video can be paused with a single click
  • Display the video on mobile browsers or not
  • All configuration options can be set individually for each video

Some notes on video autoplaying

All modern browsers will autoplay videos as long as they are muted.

However, browsers have different policies on autoplaying videos with sound. Particularly:

  • Chrome will only autoplay videos with sound after the following user interactions: mouse move, mouse click, page scrolling, typing or mobile screen touching. Additionaly, on mobile, Chrome may not play the video automatically if the 'Data saver' option is on.
  • Firefox will autoplay videos with sound in all cases
  • Safari will only autoplay videos with sound after the following user interactions: mouse click, typing or mobile screen touching
  • Edge will autoplay videos with sound in all cases

In order to have the most consistent experience on all browsers, our app will start video playing with no sound and, depending on the browser, will enable sound if possible (normally after a user interaction).

Please note that old devices dropped support of video autoplaying so the app won't generally work on old versions of Android Browser and iPhone (version 6 with iOS version 9 or earlier).
