Video on home page?

I know this might be asking a lot, but is it possible to add a video on top of the home heading text and button area (which would push these down)? I guess I could just do away with the heading and button and create a page instead (adding what the header and button have in them now, but further down to accommodate the video), but I like what is there now and would prefer to just add a video above the heading.

There is an option to add video media, but it doesn’t work well because a) my video is 54MB (and it only allows 8MB which I can’t resize to something that small) and b) putting a link to the YouTube video as it says I can do does not result in anythying. Even if I was successful with YouTube, I don’t want this to replace the background image so ultimately this option does not satisfy the goal of the video sitting on top and over everything on the home page — and where a modal or slider would do the trick.

Any suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated! The site in question is Your Idea Counts!.
