Support » Plugin: Video Background » Video Background plugin – using it for a HEADER background

  • mikisi


    I tried this plugin with different themes, selecting the container to be ‘.header’. In all themes it ended up showing the video playing in a very narrow stripe at the very top of the page.
    How to fix the plugin to display the video in proper height?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi mikisi,

    Sorry for the late response.

    Can you please reference me with your site URL so I could take a look at this issue? Thanks.


    Hi Blake,
    The website is
    Currently it set to theme Pixova Lite and video background is on ‘body’.

    However, I attach here – screenshots of what happens if the video background plugin is set to ‘.header’

    Also, the video does not show at all with basic themes like Twenty Fifteen,
    Twenty Thirteen, Twenty Sixteen.

    In fact, I could find any theme in which the videos showed as header.

    Please advise?

    Hi mikisi,

    the .header class is just an example of what you could use. The chances are very low that all websites will have this class. For example if you wanted it to work on Twenty Fifteen, Twenty Sixteen, etc. WordPress likes to use an id #masthead. Again, these are just examples, your specific theme will have something different.

    In your theme’s specific case, it looks like you are going to want to use #intro for the container 🙂

    You can reference this support video for more information on finding your container (The video is for Video Background Pro but the container field functions in the same way):

    Please let me know if this resolves your issue!
