Add a looping video in home slider

Hey guys. I’m wondering if it is possible to add a looping video in the home page slider. I’d like to deactivate sliding images,so essentially make it one standing “image”, then make that a video that would automatically start playing upon landing on my page.

Is that at all possible to do? Or would I have to go search for an outside plugin and create a video slider?


Hello there,

Thank you for reaching out to us here. The free version of Sydney doesn’t support video header, but the pro version does. Please see the features here:

It can be easily configured through Appearance > Customize > Header area > Header type > enable video. Then navigate to Header area > Video > enter the URL path to your video files.
