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 Firefox mobile everything works as on desktop browsers with no further issues.

Some mobile browsers, as 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.

Easy to handle all around and very effective way to give some dynamic content to your website. Great app. Www.dorabeauty.us

Apart from being a two-click installation and not one-click as proclaimed :-)

Just kidding! I love everything about this app. It does what it promise to perfection and the result is just as I want it. Couldn't be happier.

Fantastic app and fantastic support. I have a tricky theme setup and the Code Black Belt team helped me set it up perfectly and was rapid in their response. The UI on the back end is phenomenal as well - super easy to change videos and put them where you want them.

Bravo.

I received an answer very quickly and was able to make my website a lot more attractive in a matter of minutes. I highly recommend this app!

App works great, but I think $6/mo is more than it needs to be. All these Shopify apps seem to nickel and dime you to death.
