mb.YTPlayer for background videos

Play any Youtube video as background of your page or as custom player inside an element of the page.

I'm using the plug in as background video and I can see the control bar on the bottom but the video doesn't display

Your theme is probably using a wrapper for the content and it probably has a background color or image. You should check the CSS and remove that background to let the video that is behind do display correctly.

Everything is working fine on my desktop but it doesn't work on any mobile devices

Do to restrictions adopted both by browser vendors and Youtube this plugin can't work on touch devices.

I would have an image on the background before the video starts and after the video end; how can I do?

The simplest way is to add an image as background of the body via CSS.

I set the video quality to hd1080 but it doesn't display at this quality; why?

The video quality option is just a suggestion for the Youtube API; the video is served by Youtube with the quality that best fits the bandwidth and the display size according to that setting.

The video stops some seconds before the real end; why?

To prevent the display of the "play" button provided by the Youtube API the video intentionally stops some seconds before the end; if you are the owner of the video I can suggest to make it a little bit longer (about 3/4 seconds).
