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).

Hustle Drops

SO BUGGY. I cannot replace an element or edit the preferences for my video. I cannot even chose the video I want as the background. Really brutal.

I use this to cleanly embed video content into product pages. It's works very well. I loop the video so no ads happen at the end and it loads quickly and looks just right. I make a space on my product page and then target the youtube video to insert on that segment in the app.
