Background color disappearing under background video

Recommended Posts

I'm adding a short video to my site background. I'm using the Opacity filter at 35% and placing the video over a dark blue background.

When editing, it looks great. As soon as I save the work and return to the main dashboard page, the background color defaults to white. The faded video still runs, but as I'm using white text, the white background renders everything just about illegible.

Don't see any obvious reason for this happening, and the fact that things look as intended when I'm editing makes me think there's some kind of glitch in SquareSpace.

Can anyone recommend a fix or workaround?
