Video Background

Embed dynamic videos from YouTube or Vimeo ANYWHERE in your store in minutes

From replacing static images to background video on your home page, Video Background enables you to choose any public Vimeo, YouTube, or other preselected video and embed it on any page in your shop in minutes.

You Choose Exactly Where to Embed a Video

Using video marketing in your store to attract customers, increase engagement, and educate your audience is easier than ever before with Video Background. You can embed a video in ANY section on ANY page in your shop with our 4 types of video features:

  • Section video background. Show promo video as the background of an existing element or display it as video header.
  • Element replacement video. Replace an existing element, like a picture, with a video.
  • Full page video background. Set the mood in your shop with a full page background video that remains static when scrolling the page.
  • Responsive content video. Embed a responsive video that will fit your browser size in a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Customize Videos on Every Page in Your Store

Not only does Video Background enable you to customize videos for your store, each video can be customized individually. You can personalize the same video for different pages, or you can choose the same customization options for different videos to create a sense of continuity in your shop. Customize each and every video you embed with options that include:

  • Padding around the video
  • Transparency configurations
  • Play/pause icon at the bottom left of the video player
  • Mute/sound icon at the bottom left of the video player
  • Decide if you want to display the video on mobile or not
  • Choose if you want the video to play with or without sound
  • You can even display videos on your 404 Not Found page!

The best part is, no matter how you customize your video, you can hide that annoying YouTube and Vimeo title bar that is displayed at the beginning of every video!

One-Click Installation With Full Support

You can embed a YouTube video or a Vimeo video with a single click. Configuration is done through an intuitive visual assistant that enables you to place a video anywhere on your page without any prior design or coding experience necessary.

Our team is standing by to help if you have questions about the embedding process. Contact us and we can troubleshoot any problems you may be having. Our team is also available to take on special requests and custom app features, if there's something you would like to implement on your site that isn’t currently enabled with our app. We can even provide you with design ideas!

    Die App ist absolut intuitiv zu bedienen und die Videos lassen sich an jedem gewünschten Platz auf der Webseite platzieren. Ein kleines Problem auf der Startseite wurde vom Support innerhalb von wenigen Minuten behoben. So macht das Spaß! Herzlichen Dank!
