Where can I configure a Video Background?

With Video Background, is possible to add as many videos as you need to any number of pages, you can even configure several videos on the same page. But, what we cannot do, is to configure different videos in the same spot.

In this article, we explain a bit about the most common places to configure a Video Background in your store. To do so, please kindly take into account the following:

  • A video can be placed on any public page including the home page, corporate pages or collection pages.
  • We can place different videos on each page(different spots) and/or we can place the same video for all pages (same spot on all pages).

To place the video on All pages/Same spot:

This can be done on most themes since the templates are hierarchical, that is, there is a master template that contains the shared elements such as the header and the footer. These are the common pieces and good candidates for the All pages option.

Let’s go to the app preferences page and then let’s tap on Add new video. You'll be prompted to select the page where you want the video background to be displayed. Let’s select All pages. Once selected, choose the video type "Section video background":

On the same page, using the first option "Visual Selection", please select the Header or Footer in your store. The app will show you the process to do so, you just need to follow the instructions and you’ll be all set. 

In the screenshots below you can see examples of pages with the shared elements highlighted in red. As mentioned before, the header and footer are the recommended candidates for the  All pages option.
The homepage:
A collection page:

A product page:

To place the video on a particular page or different pages and different spots:

To do so, let’s go to the app preferences page and then let’s tap on Add new video. In the next page, let’s select the page where we want the video to be placed.Once everything is configured (Section video background), you will have to select the element as in the previous example, using our Visual tool.

Once you have the location, press "Save and continue" and just copy the link of the video and you will be all set. 

If you want to add more videos, you just need to do the process again for each one. The location of the video will be all up to you, you can place it in the home page, on a featured section or even as a background.
