[Pro] jQuery Video Background

Hi everyone,

I am trying to implement a fullscreen video background on 100+pages. I have previously used the freeway video background action, but the low resolution is an issue for my current project.

I plan to have the video backgrounds on pages that auto redirect after a set amount of time to another page with a video background, so on and so forth.

In the past I have used a simple html markup to insert a video background, but I cant get it to work properly again, and would like to use something more modern. An example of the html markup is here: http://mirrorsandrugs.com/

What I would like to implement is here: OKFocus Video

Thanks in advance.

What I would like to implement is here:

My primary concern would be using jQuery on all your FW pages - this is not going to play well with the Scriptaculous/Prototype based javascript FW actions.

Another concern would be that to use it on so many pages would become tedious and there could be serious performance issues - especially if you wish to use higher resolution video.

That jQuery plug-in certainly seems straightforward but is meant to be used with YouTube and Vimeo hosted video.

DeltaDave,

What simple steps and action did you use to get the video background like that?

Thanks,
Chris
