Video Background - Having it to display full screen (including site's header)

Recommended Posts

For some reason, my website doesn't showcase a full video background when i select the media on the homepage.

It only affects the selected section, i want it to be affecting the header too.

This is what is happening right now:



This is what i want to achieve:



Can somebody point out the problem? As i understand squarespace 7.1 themes are all capable of doing the same in terms of styling, i watched youtubers and they just simply click on the section settings, add the video and automatically everything fits for the whole screen. I need help, it's driving me nuts... thanks in advance though.
