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.

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.

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.

Amazing App, allowed me to integrate a video background easily, which I have been quoted thousands for from web designers. Thanks so much!

This is an awesome must have app. I have used the app to insert many videos on my site in custom positions of a specific page & it's working great!

This is a must have app if you want your website to come alive. You know the old saying; a single picture speaks a thousand words... Imagine what a video does :)

Thanks Codeblackbelt, you guys are awesome

Terrible - very lacking in control, placement, sizing and stability. Loaded two vidoes up on site - worked fine that day. Within 24 hours videos were not working on site. I would not recommend this software/app.
