Question
Hello,

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

http://www.fcv.ca/

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

Thank you very much

Answer
There are a number of plugins which can achieve this effect. A great reference site to get started would be: http://demosthenes.info/blog/777/Create-Fullscreen-HTML5-Page-Background-Video

Check out the bottom of that page for links to other jQuery plugin sites.

Note: Keep mobile users in mind. If you're on your cellphone most likely the video won't play in the background but would still need to be loaded. That would cause your site to load much slower than necessary if that code was targeted to tablet and larger screen sizes.

Please let me know if you need any more assistance.
