Web Design/Video as a bg image


Hello, Daniel

I was wondering what technique is being used in the background image/video at this website ( dog catching the freesbe ):

What's the name of this technique?
Is there more than 1 way to achieve this?

Thank you very much

Hi Jake

There are a number of ways to achieve this. Most using HTML 5 new video tag.

You are probably best searching for some tutorials on html 5 video and using it as a background. As it would be too involved for me to talk you through it.

Using jquery may help speed up the process if you aren't too familiar using it.

Here are a couple of useful links:

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards

I can answer questions on most areas of web design & development - including: html5, css3, JavaScript, php, search engine optimisation, mobile web development & responsive design.


I have been in the web design & development sector for 10 years and have been running my own web design company for 10 years. Working with lots of completed projects within that time.

I have mostly been self taught which is the way I learn best. I have been on lots of training courses, read lots & lots of books. Within this sector though I find the best way to learn is to get stuck in.
