Using jquery and lazy load? - Fullscreen Video

video

Hi there,

I have looked across google but I can’t seem to figure out how to work using a jquery with an embedded YouTube video. The idea is to have a video playing fullscreen in the background. Instead of having it play an mp4 file which will take up bandwidth, it will be embedded from YouTube, or Vimeo. I am new to all of this so am totally lost.

Any advice would be a great help.

Thanks Kind Regards

Ollie

You can embed a youtube video in an iframe without jQuery
Take a look at this tutorial

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the reply, I have had a play around with embedding via iframe, but it isn’t giving the look I am after. I have since done some more research and have come across the jquery plugin
( http://dfcb.github.io/BigVideo.js/ ). This is the exact result I am looking for (A fullscreen background video which fades in once loaded to avoid user seeing loading screen and then auto plays and loops when finished). The problem is I am unsure of how to use a youtube/vimeo video and setup the various jquery files to make it work within Hype.

Any advice and guidance would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks Ollie

Haven’t had time yet to play with the new plugin you found but it looks pretty solid.
If I get a chance this week I will share what I find.

Thanks @nick will be a great element to include within a project. Sure if you get a chance report back what you think.

Thanks Ollie
