Revslider video background

Recommended Posts


I can't get my head round how to get video to show as a background to my slides. Ideally I would like a video to play on a loop while slides played over the top. 


So far I've added 2 vids to the background (mp4 and .ogv) and to the slide background but all I get is the slide background image which I have to enter for each slide.




 I just want it to work like the DMS demo but am cannot find any documentation on how to use revslider in DMS2. I've found some documentation from the origonatores of the program but it does not reference DMS in any way I can understand.

You need to apply your videos to the slide video options and not the background video option which is what you have done. Remove the uploaded videos from those options and then click on one of your slide options for example slide 1 and then upload your videos there instead.


Also, we are aware that the RevSlider requires documentation, when we released DMS we assumed the inline documentation would be enough. So we are currently in the process of updating our documentation and I have the RevSlider on my to-do-list.

Please search our forums, before posting!

See if this helps you.....  I use a video layer background with back up image. then make my slide image 80% transparent to give motion effects on the images.

      The Filtering of categories in the Masonic Gallery refreshes back to ALL categories when the DMS Revslider loads a new image?
      Anybody any idea? See Artists Category refreshes back to ALL when the DMS Revslider with images on the top loads a news image on http://www.18hrsfestival.nl/

      Trying to convert a site over to PL5 from DMS2. Can we use revslider? Can any portion of DMS2 be editable or imported through PL5?
      I'm trying to wrap my head around the new PL5 os, but things have changed so much it like learning a new software. I DO like the new UI! Great job.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      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!
