  • Enhance your store with fancy video backgrounds
  • Just as simple as choosing any video and the section where you want to show it
  • One click install. No coding required


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


See it in action with the following examples:


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. Please note that only muted videos will autoplay on the latest versions of Chrome or on 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

Mobile support

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

On Firefox and UC browser everything works as on desktop browsers with no further issues.

The latest versions of Safari and Chrome will autoplay videos as long as they are muted.

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.

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.

sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't. waste of time


This app works great. Not only you can show full widht videos at your homepage, also you can do it at any custom page. My special mention to the support team, they work quickly and efficiently.

I totally recomend this app


Not only did CODE BLACK BELT pimp the heck out of their extension for me, they also swag-daddied on the support response times and generosity! Check out the delicious fruit of their labour at allsafesecurity.co.nz, now featuring pre-buffering and a very schwifty introduction video


Frank has proven to be one of the most helpful professionals in the field. Can't thank him enough for his support.

Fantastic app, fantastic team, can't believe it works so easy...thank you so much!
I can see some complains, that I can't understand and must absolutely disagree with. Well numbers don't lie, just look at the number of 5star review. Legfekcentrum.hu


Watched a youtube video on this" Video Background" app and followed the instructions with the video and the app did not respond like the video said it would.
The video explains that the app will do all the work, yeah right.
Then the option for if the app doesn't work, is to email the developer, and wait for a response. Really?
Only good thing about my experience with this app is I got a free trial. Good idea for app like this Codeblackbelt, but, please make this app better and easier to use. Also, update the youtube video on it..


Really great App. Dont mind paying for this one. Works very well and they will help you if you need it if you message them. Takes a bit of practice at first to learn where to put the videos so you need to click on the right boxes but after a few tries, it really isn't hard, believe me if I can do it....


We have ben customers with shopify for aboth 12 months now.We have used around 30 / 40 differant apps they have, and delited most of tham as they dont and never ever works. In my soon 61 yers on this planet I have had several webshops and therfore also ben using many differant webhost companys around this planet, but anything like shopify and their apps I have never seen anything like it in any plase on this entire planet. The service,responds,backfees given us from this company and its app develupers you want find in your wildest dreams and immagination any simular as well as worst. I just made an phonecall to shopify support aboth your backgraound vidio crap thats neigther are working as it should as nothing happends whan you choose any backgrounds, and what did they had to say.The same story as always.Iam sorry for your problems we are here to help and blablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablabla

As we just payd the outstanding invoice thar we have ben refusing to pay for more than 1 month now, as the CEO and owner of our company,I have desided to saty with this crap out the rest of this month and than moove to another webhost company as soon as we find one that actually are able and know how to sell a service that works as well as how they do business and deels with their customers.



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!


hard to understand but good!!!!!!!


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