Carrie Atkins asks,
Hi, Love your tutorials! Looking to put the video in Parallax Pro, Studiopress. I want to use it as a background in one of the home page widgets. Any tips? Thanks!!!
In this tutorial I show how HTML5 video element can be set to appear like background for Home Section 1 in Parallax Pro. Since the video is going to be inline vs used as a background via jQuery script, the video will get resized proportionately as the screen width is reduced and at a specific width the video shall be replaced with an image.
Convert your mp4 video to ogv and webm formats using a software like the free Miro Video Converter. Upload these 3 files to /videos. Upload the poster or lower width background image to both /images and child theme directory's images directory.
Remove Home Section 1 from Customizer.
a) Edit lib/customize.php.
