Is there a function, built in to one of the foundry stacks, that can make Video backgrounds?
I looked at the backdrop stack and the motion stack but can´t find a setting for that. Or have anyone tried a stack from other developer to accomplish this?
If there is not. It would be one of very few thing missing @elixirgraphics :) See link below what I mean.
Would be nice to be able to choose between different smooth transmissions and overlays.
No, this is not a stack that you will find in Foundry. It would require users manually encoding and uploading their own videos and then having to also link to them manually. Users would need a pretty good understanding of encoding videos for different devices and platforms. This is not something that I want to add to Foundry at this time.
Ok:) I see.
Is it the same dilemma when using a youtube och Vimeo video as background?
There are ways to do that, more with Vimeo than with YouTube, due to the way their embeds work, advertising overlays, etc.
It isn’t something that I am interested in including in Foundry though at this time like I mentioned. If that is something you want to use though I am sure there are stacks in the RapidWeaver community that will achieve this, and they’re likely compatible with Foundry. Have a look around the RapidWeave Community site.
Joe Workman makes a stack called Eclipse that will add a background video to a page.
Don’t forget that BWD SectionsPro does video background and supports MP4, WEBM and OGG. It is free of course but don’t forget to buy Andrew a coffee.
I tried that one now but it seems like it does not scale down properly on mobile. Could it be because it is Youtube video I used?
That’s a question for Gary of doobox. He is very good a responding to support questions for his products.
