Video Background with third Format

Recommended Posts


Hello! Love DMS...it's amazing how fast it allows creation of beautiful websites!


Here's one suggestions, however... how come we can't three formats for video backgrounds?  Technically, for HTML5 videos to play on certain devices/browsers, we would need to include .webm as well as the .mp4 and .ogv.


Really hope to this addition soon!

Thanks for the observation.  I can't guarantee it'll make it's way into the next update but we'll definitely revisit the formats to make sure we're able to hit the most popular browsers and devices.

Great! The sooner the better.  After looking at the code... it seems that just an option to add a third format would solve the problem perfectly! :D   I am also wondering if Android Chrome will be able to playback mp4s soon...  which would also solve the problem!  :p


Either way, if I could just select a third format, I'd be rockin and rollin! Whenever you can add it! :)

      Hello there,
      We are still using DMS 2 and were wondering if it was at all compatible with slider revolution. (https://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380). Our issue is that the default revslider for DMS clips the top and sides of videos when made responsive. As the video is made smaller or larger the bottom of it tends to be cut off, or the sides are. We noticed slider revolution was 100% responsive, but have had numerous issues even getting it to display in DMS 2. We have tried using the shortcode, and various php scripts to no avail. Our last attempt was to try and load it with header scripts, but at this point we seem to be further away than ever. 
      This leads me to a few questions:
      1. Is Slider Revolution even compatible with DMS2?
      2. Is there a way we can get 100% responsive video in DMS 2 with zero clipping? (tonyrobbins.com is another good example of the effect we are trying to achieve.)
      3. If Slider Revolution is compatible, how do we go about adding it in?
      Thank you for any help.

      Hi Guys, 
      I just went live with this site. http://bikenet.org/
      I can see the video background in Firefox, Chrome and IE on my computer as well as my husband's computer and my phone. So I am not able to see any problem. 
      But, my client says she cannot see the video background in Chrome?? Any ideas? 
      Let me know. Thanks!

      There are no controls in Chrome. There is in Safari but they doesn´t show up in Chrome.
      I have Version 1.4 and the latest DMS 2.1.5

      I was curious why our video is loading so slow on our site we are working on http://pharmacistrecruitersusa.com/
      When its finally up and running it runs smooth, but until it loads it just a blank white screen. This is just a sample video as well, low quality. Its going to take forever to load when we get a better quality video in place of it.
      So why is it taking so much time to load?
      Is there a program or settings you suggest to make the video load quicker?
      I used after effects to render out my mp4 and then used a convertor for the webm and ogg
