Video Backgrounds


Use Video Backgrounds to add a moving video quickly from YouTube or Vimeo as a Website background. Video backgrounds can catch a visitor's eye with moving content and add a stylish modern look to any Website.


  1. To add a video background to your Site, find the YouTube or Vimeo URL you want to use.
  2. Right-click the row or column you'd like to add this background to, then click "Edit Design".
  3. Click the Video tab.
  4. Paste the URL of the video you'd like to use into the YouTube or Vimeo URL textbox.

Things to consider

  • Background videos will not play sound.
  • Videos can take time and bandwidth to load and can distract users from important links or text on your page, so use videos sparingly.
  • Consider reducing the opacity of the video background to make the effect more subtle.
