Video Backgrounds

Adding a video background is quite simple.

To create a video background follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the post edit screen in PostsAll Posts.
  2. Set the Post Format select field to Video.
  3. Scroll down to the “Video” meta box below the post editor and add a YouTube URL.
  4. Select the location of the video background in the “Video Background” meta box.
  5. Optionally add start and end time of the video.
  6. Save your post.

See the screenshot for more details:



If the video background doesn’t work, please make sure you’ve also added a preview image. A preview image is required as a fallback for some mobile devices, that cannot playback a video background.
