How Do I Set Up a Video Background for a Block?

To set a video as a block background, mouse over the block and select the Background icon:

In the block background settings, select the Video option and paste a link to a video from YouTube or Vimeo.

The settings of the video background allow you to:

  • change the thumbnail image
  • set up color overlay and adjust its transparency
  • center or right/left align the video
  • set the zoom
  • set the speed of video playback
  • add visual effects


Make sure you have allowed the video to be embedded on the third-party services in the video settings on side of the video hosting.
