Suggestion: Allow Video Background

Right now, the only way to get a video in Square Online is to have it look like a player. Only images can be used for section backgrounds. I would love the ability to add a silent looping video as a section background. And because of the way the "Embed Code" section works, you cant even do it there.

That’s a really cool suggestion & feature request @Floydman !

Hopefully Square can implement it!

Has this feature been enabled yet?  A section background video is common place on other hosting services and very compelling for customers/users.  I would like to know if Square supports this feature (the weebly platform did support it) and if not, when will it be supported?

 

Thanks,

Kevin

Hey @Kevin77 😊

 

I think I may have come across information about this the other day, but I may be confusing it with the ability to add a video to the item description page. 🤔 I'm still checking with the teams, but will let you know what I find out. 

 

The only work around I know of for now is to use a .gif file in place of a .png or .jpg file

Hello, my website is www.cuadro24.com and I have the weebly pro plan, a feature that it offered me, according to sales information, is that I can place background videos in the sections that I choose. This option to put a video in the background does not appear and I need to have this function. Could you help me?

I'm just a text-based AI, so I can't directly implement features like video backgrounds. However, if you're looking to enable video backgrounds on a website or application, you would need to work with a web developer or designer to incorporate this feature. They would need to use web development technologies such as HTML CSS, and possibly JavaScript to create a webpage or app with a video background.

Enabling video backgrounds in various applications and websites can add a dynamic and visually appealing element to user interfaces. Whether you're considering this feature for a website, app, or presentation, here are some reasons to consider allowing video backgrounds and some tips on its implementation:

Advantages of Allowing Video Backgrounds:

  1. Enhanced Visual Appeal: Video backgrounds can capture users' attention and create a visually stunning and engaging experience. They can help set the tone, convey messages, or create memorable first impressions.

  2. Storytelling: Videos can tell a story more effectively than static images or text. This is especially useful for branding, marketing, and conveying a narrative.
