Easy as hell jQuery plugin for video backgrounds.
- All modern desktop browsers are supported.
- iOS plays video from a browser only in the native player. So video for iOS is disabled, only fullscreen poster will be used.
- Some android devices play video, some not — go figure. So video for android is disabled, only fullscreen poster will be used.
Download it from GitHub or via Bower:
bower install vide
Prepare your video in several formats like '.webm', '.mp4' for cross browser compatibility, also add a poster with
path/ ├── to/ │ ├── video.mp4 │ ├── video.ogv │ ├── video.webm │ └── video.jpg
data-vide-bg attribute with a path to the video and poster without extension, video and poster must have the same name. Add
data-vide-options to pass vide options, if you need it. By default video is muted, looped and starts automatically.
Also you can set extended path:
In some situations it can be helpful to initialize it with JS because Vide doesn't have mutation observers:
Easy as hell.
Below is a complete list of options and matching default values:
volume: 1playbackRate: 1muted: trueloop: trueautoplay: trueposition: '50% 50%' // Similar to the CSS `background-position` property.posterType: 'detect' // Poster image type. "detect" — auto-detection; "none" — no poster; "jpg", "png", "gif",... - extensions.resizing: true // Auto-resizing, read:bgColor: 'transparent' // Allow custom background-color for Vide div,className: '' // Add custom CSS class to Vide div
Below is a complete list of methods:
// Get instance of the pluginvar instance = data'vide';// Get video element of the background. Do what you want.instance;// Resize video background.// It calls automatically, if window resize (or element, if you will use something like ).instance;// Destroy plugin instanceinstance;
The Vide plugin resizes if the window resizes. If you will use something like https://github.com/cowboy/jquery-resize, it will resize automatically when the container resizes. Or simply use
resize() method whenever you need.
resizing option to false to disable auto-resizing.
meteor add vodkabears:vide
Because of how meteor renders templates reactively you will need to initialize manually for the templates you want to use vide in.
