How to Add a Background Video
NOTE: If the mute switch is not on, your video will not autoplay in most browsers, regardless of whether or not the video has any sound.
Video backgrounds help boost conversions - that's why we love them! Here's how to create a background video for your page:
- Click Media in the Elements tray, then click Background Video. It'll show up as a black box: this is normal, and you can see how everything will look in the final version by clicking Preview. Position it where you want it to go, and adjust the order of elements by clicking the Bring Forward and Send Backward buttons in the toolbar.
- With the video element selected, click on Video Properties in the Properties panel. Enter your video's source URL in the source box in the toolbar. Note: these videos aren't hosted by Convertri, so you'll need to store them somewhere else.
- Switch 'Mute' to on.That's all you need to do - just remember that your video won't play while in the Page Builder to keep things running smoothly. Once you hit Preview or view your published page, your video will play as normal.
NOTE: Only some mobile devices support autoplaying videos, and non-muted videos are often blocked from autoplaying.
