Video background

Is there a prebuilt function for fullscreen video background? Or do you have any tips about how to make it?

Hello,

Please try to do the following:

  1. Go to your DashboardAppearanceCustomizeHeader areaHeader type → select Video → click Save & Publish button.

  2. Go to your DashboardAppearanceCustomizeHeader areaHeader Media → set a video → click Save & Publish button.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

I can only choose image or menu. There is no video option.

Can you please provide a link to your website?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Thank you for the link. It looks like you have already added video, do you still need help?

I would like to have your help if the theme as a prebuild function for showing fullscreen video. I have not succeeded with my code yet ;(

What is your WordPress version and Astrid version?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Wordpress 4.7.3 and Astrid 1.10
(I also purchased the Astrid Pro as i was going to use the portfolio but it did not work with filter and therefore I have uninstalled it)

Can you please try to update to Astrid 1.14 and visit the section that I mentioned in the first answer once again? Please remember about importance of regular full site backups.

Kind Regards, Roman.

  1. I think that it’s natural that video increases page load time. You can check this article:

(WP does not accept that I upload the video via admin, too big)
