Background Video atom - Freebie by MrT

    • Hey Mr T

      Since Im doing a lot more Video footage and playing around with drone footage I was thinking of making a website with a video background.

      I have a quick question. What Gantry 5 template would you recommend for full video background? I see Citadel does most part of the screen and is Gantry 5. Would you recommend any others.

      I removed my other questions because I see the recommended screen resolution sizes.

      Thanks in advance!

      Justin

    • 1. Any G5 template.

      2. 1950 x 1024px is probably the optimial size.

      3. local only video.

    • Hi Mr T

      I know Lumiere is a Gantry 4 template, but I really like the template as its full screen with the video background. Is there any way of using this with the Gantry 5 functionalities or can you suggest how I could make the template like this with the video background in Gantry 5?

      Thanks Again for all you do

    • This free atom In the first post here will give you a full screen video background in a gantry 5 template - that’s the reason for this topic.

    • Oh sorry Mark,

      I didnt realise that, I'll have to give this a proper test.

      I might annoy the hell out of you by the end getting it working properly! :P

      Thanks again!

    • Thank you for supplying this nice atom.
      I stumbled upon an issue in regards of mobile compatibility.

      I am using the myriad template with gantry5 and the mobile menu does not show content anymore and instead just is completely transparent.

      The same happened to my cookie notification (which is another plugin/module and hence not relevant for this thread)

      I will see if I can come up with a solution myself.

      For clarity, I attached a screen shot.

      cheers

    • It's probably just a z-index thing. Please would you post your URL, superuser id and pswd in the secure tab of your post and I'll have a look for you.

    • Hi Mark,

      Can I check something with you when you have a moment?

      I've a few videos on the following page www.xts.ie but I feel the site is loading slow with the video.

      I've compressed the video to 18mb which may still be a little large?

      Appreciate any tips or advice

      Browser Im using is Chrome.

      Regards
      Justin
