About Video Background

Installation could not be easier. It's a one-click process with no coding required.

Fully customisable background videos

  • Choose any YouTube video or one from the preselected list of videos
  • 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
  • Choose the video opacity 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
  • Display a nice mute / sound icon at the bottom left of the video
  • 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).

Since I have updated my theme, it doesnt work anymore. I have contacted the service team, but without the reply I was looking for. I dont want to send the video I am about to upload, but would like to have a solution on using the app on my latest theme.
