Background video ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I want to broadcast a Youtube video (or other) in the background, but none of the plugins I've tried do not work properly with my theme PageLines Pro. Is there a plug-in PageLines to do this? Otherwise, how to make it work on IE, Chrome, Safari and Firefox?

If implemented properly background video can look really good (spotify.com) and there are plugins in the repository and JS plugins that allow you to achieve this. 

 

There are wordpress plugins eg http://wordpress.org/plugins/wpmbytplayer/ 

 

check out  Bigvideo.js here - http://dfcb.github.io/BigVideo.js/ 

 

The problem might come when trying to get it to work across all the browsers. What problems have you come across when trying to use on IE, Chrome, Safari and Firefox?


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

I use mb.YTPlayer that works very well on all Apple browsers, however, it does not work on Chrome and Fire Fox in Window.

Hi there,

 

Check out  - http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/video-background/ which is a pagelines section implements by one of the developers. If you have any questions regarding this section check out the link above and leave any questions you have as a comment for the developer to get back to you and advise further.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      I'd like to request a section (or that this could be enabled on the background settings of the existing sections) in which we could set a image to stay fixed, just as we can see in the link below:
      http://www.bootply.com/render/100702 (you can see 2 different background images and everything scrolls on top of it.)
      Is it possible to be done without having to code it via CSS every time?

      Hi,
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:

      Hi,
      I am trying to get the background image of the Revslider to be clickable and redirect to a link.
      Does anyone know how this is possible?
