Description


The latest fashion on web design is now available for Shopify!


Enhance your site showing a video background. As simple as:


  • Choose any YouTube public video or one of our selected videos

  • Choose the section of your page where it will be shown

Demo

See it in action with the following examples:

Installation

The installation could not be easier. It is a one-click process with no coding required at all.

The video must be a public YouTube video. It will be shown in your store, so if you want to display a private video, you must change the privacy policy to public.

Configuration options

You can change the following options at any time:


  • Choose any YouTube video or one from the 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, all page, etc.)

  • Choose an optional padding around the video

  • Choose the video opacity

  • You can also mute the audio

  • 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

Mobile support

We do our best to make the app work on all devices. Unfortunately, mobile devices have different policies on autoplaying media so it's not possible to exhibit the same behaviour across all devices.

On the latest versions of Safari, Chrome and Firefox mobile everything works as on desktop browsers with no further issues. Chrome may not play the video automatically if the 'Data saver' option is on.

Some mobile browsers, as older versions of Chrome, play the video after any user interaction, for example, scrolling down the page.

On some older versions of Android Browser and Safari, the videos cannot be played automatically. A transparent play button in the middle of the video is shown that can be pressed to start playing the video.

Videos backgrounds usually work good on all tablet models.

The app provides the option to be disabled completely on mobile devices to show a consistent behaviour across all mobile devices.

Free support


Depending on your Shopify theme, configuring the video background on some elements may be quite tricky. In that case, just drop us an email with the YouTube URL and where you want to place it and we will configure for you as soon as possible.

i cannot begin to praise this enough!
we've spent a good couple of weeks looking at varying video tools and apps on Shopify and after carefully reading through both reviews and features lists we finally decided to give video background a trial and we have been blown away with it so far!
we are now looking to implement video background across our whole site!
To sum it up for us:
Easy to use with a wealth of functionality
incredibly helpful and polite support staff
useful dynamic tool!

We would highly recommend!

I'm completely new to Shopify and had my background video set up within minutes. Highly recommend!

I am super-glad that I found this app. First of all, it does exactly what you need: play videos on your website and make it look modern and professional. The setup is easy and the configuration and placement of videos is clear and straightforward.
What really convinced me was that their customer service fixed some issues that came up in combination with my theme, even before I reached out to them. They found the issue and had it fixed within 24 hours after install. These guys absolutely rock: thanks Frank again for the continuing support! If you want to see how it looks like, visit winstonjgreene.com (I'm running the Jumpstart theme). Cheers!

Update after one year with the app: I still think that this app adds significant value to my store, but what really has me convinced is the ongoing, uncomplicated, and friendly customer service offered by Frank and Mike from Code Black Belt. Whenever I had an issue, or couldn't configure something the way I imagined, these two would go out of their way to make it happen. And I mean even things beyond what the app offers. This is just the best customer service (and app), I have ever encountered. If you're reading at this and consider the app - get it.

Awesome, I have a complicated template that doesn't allow video's where I wanted without manipulation. Didn't think this app would work but it worked right away. I didn't configure that app properly and Mike fixed it and responded to my message within 3 minutes.
