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.

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.

Wow! This app is amazing because of the amazing help I received configuring my video! The team responds quickly and was able to resolve my issues in a timely manner. Adding a video to my site will really help boost sales!

Update: Mike responded to our review super quickly and offered a great solution to add a video under our product images that looks great. Brilliant customer service!
Really easy to use app which makes it so easy to add videos to your homepage. Support has been fantastic and really responsive when needed. One extra thing we would love would be to add a video to the product images on product pages in Shopify without it covering all the photos. This would be an amazing bonus!
