Support » Plugin: Video Background » Video but use as an effects/animation on site

  • What’s up people! Doing some research and came along this plugin and thought it maybe a good place to see if I could get some help or direction.
    I am looking to embed a video using adobe after affects with some motion graphics onto my site. I am looking to be able to embed the effects on site in content side bar area aka via widget. But would like the video to loop. Here’s to the idea the thing is I want the video to look like its embedded and won’t have the play bar at bottom because want to have it loop and look Intergrated in the widget. I am going to make it look more like an effect slash animate in the widget. I know WordPress 3.6 added the video and audio feature so I am wondering if I can upload a video file into my media library then use shortcodes in widgets area, but what about looping and getting rid of the play bar at bottom?

    Hi Johnny,

    This sounds like something you’ll be able to accomplish with the Video Background shortcode through the functions.php file. If you want the video background effect on every page, you can just add this function to display on every page:

    function vidbg_in_widget_area() {
      // Your Video Background shortcode
      echo do_shortcode( '[vidbg container="body" mp4="#" webm="#" poster="#" muted="true" loop="true" overlay="false" overlay_color="#000" overlay_alpha="0.3"]' );
    add_action( 'wp_footer', 'vidbg_in_widget_area' );
