Embed a video from "Custom Files" as a banner background

Recommended Posts

I had been using the Youtube embed function but the video (~11 seconds) was not loading, or loading very slowly. I have an MP4 stored in the custom files area and I would like to embed it as the background banner at the bottom of my site (behind "Ready for the next step?"). I can also upload it as a WebM if that is more widely compatible.

What is the procedure and code to do add this?

Thanks so much!

Chrome inspector results for the relevant block:

div class="Index-page-content sqs-alternate-block-style-container" id="yui317211566060544427701"
