You are likely to have text, buttons or some kind of content over the top of your video background. Ensure you do not confuse the viewer or obstruct the legibility of the content with a few tips:
If you are loading the video directly onto your website ensure the file size is no greater than 6MB.
It is wise to choose a video that is limited in length as video file sizes can be quite large, and can slow down the loading time of your site. It is a good idea to use a short 10-15 second video or section of a video and turn it into a video loop to give the illusion of a longer video.
If loading video directly to the website use the following code:
<video controls loop> <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" /> <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg" /> </video>
If hosting video on YouTube or Vimeo etc use the following code:
<iframe width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/GRonxog5mbw?autoplay=1&loop=1&playlist=GRonxog5mbw"></iframe>
