Full screen Background video

Asked on October 12, 2015 in Feature Requests.


Is it possible to have full screen video in the background? I have tried using the slider but it will only go to a limited height.

    Hi there,

    This is not currently possible in the core Layers widget. There are a couple Layers extensions that offer video sliders or video background capabilities. You can also check out the free Master Slider plugin which allows this.


    Can you tell me or give me a link to the Layers extensions that offer video sliders or video background capabilities?  I tried Master Slider but I didn’t quite work, unfortunately I have a theme that is quite tricky to add things too.

    Hi there,

    All extensions can be browsed under Layers > Marketplace directly from your admin and I recommend checking them all out .  I can link you to this one as an example, but please ask the author any presales questions – these extensions are not supported or tested by us so I do not know the full range of options they offer.

    Master Slider is really the most prominent option for multi-media sliders that is free. They have a full screen video template that you can use to create the slider, then edit it to add your own video. Here is the documentation:
