About Video Background

Supercharge your storefront with Videos

The latest fashion in web design is now available for Shopify! Enhance your site showing all types of videos. It's as simple as:

  • Choosing any public YouTube video or one of our preselected videos
  • Chossing if you want the video to be displayed full page, or responsively, or as the background of some particular section

One-click install

Installation could not be easier. It's a one-click process with no coding required. Configuration is done through a visual assistant and our team is always ready to help with the configuration.

Fully customisable

  • Choose how the video will be displayed: as a full page video, as a responsive content video, as the video background of some section, as a video replacement of some element in your page.
  • Choose the pages where you want to have video backgrounds. You can also display videos on your 404 Not Found page
  • Choose optional padding around the video
  • Configure a transparency to make the effect nicer
  • You can also mute the audio. Please note that only muted videos will auto-play on the latest versions of Chrome or iOS devices
  • Display a nice play / pause icon at the bottom left of the video player
  • Display a nice mute / sound icon at the bottom left of the video player
  • Configure if you want to display the video on mobile browsers or not

All configuration options can be set individually for each video.

Some notes on video autoplaying

All modern browsers will autoplay videos as long as they are muted.

However, browsers have different policies on autoplaying videos with sound. Particularly:

  • Chrome will only autoplay videos with sound after the following user interactions: mouse move, mouse click, page scrolling, typing or mobile screen touching. Additionaly, on mobile, Chrome may not play the video automatically if the 'Data saver' option is on.
  • Firefox will autoplay videos with sound in all cases
  • Safari will only autoplay videos with sound after the following user interactions: mouse click, typing or mobile screen touching
  • Edge will autoplay videos with sound in all cases

In order to have the most consistent experience on all browsers, our app will start video playing with no sound and, depending on the browser, will enable sound if possible (normally after a user interaction).

I have never reviewed an app before on the Shopify app store, so clearly, Incubate has truly done something amazing for me to spend my time writing this review.
--------Pros--------
-The customer service is the best I've ever seen... ever. I message. They reply. Usually within minutes. There have been many times where I get replies/solutions in under 10 minutes and I am on my way.
-There is a lot of versatility with the app. You can truly do whatever you want with it.
-It is rather easy to use!
-It does what it says it'll do and more.
--------Cons (but not really)--------
-Once or twice a month, I experience some sort of glitch with the app. Sometimes videos will disappear without reason. I can say for sure that a handful of times I thought it was the app but it was me and vise versa. On the flip side, contact them and they will have a solution in no time. I recently had all my videos stop working and contacted them. Within an hour, everything was back to normal and better than ever.
-This could very likely not be related to the app at all but my website has a rather slow speed score. I am not sure if this is because of the app, the number of videos I have (around 15-20), or something completely unrelated. This isn't too important to me but I thought I'd point it out. Overall, 5 stars. It provides a more diverse experience to showcase my products that pictures simply can't provide. I look forward to continuing the use of this app on my website!

Love this my background is so bomb and it has music

This was exactly what I was looking for! Love this app! I was able to place a High quality clip from YouTube on my home page, automatically start, and loop infinitely without having the annoying YouTube play bar and title and you can even remove the dark gradient! Tech support is great and responds quickly if any issue. Love it, worth the money
