Support » Plugin: mb.YTPlayer for background videos » How do I show an image while video loads?

  • Resolved xxxolivierxxx


    So far I have been able to set the plugin in the way I want it to work, however, something I dislike is that depending on the network speed of the user, sometimes the video takes a while to load causing that users just see a blank page on the main page of the site. Is there a way to show a picture while the video loads in the background?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi Olivier,
    To avoid the blank background you can add a background image to the BODY tag (or to the element that contains the background video) via CSS:

    body.home {
        background-image: url(path/to/the/background/image);
        background-size: cover;
        background-repete: no-repete;
        background-position: center center;

    Once the video loads it will cover the background image.
