Video cover page

Recommended Posts

Hi when adding a video with the 7.0 Squarespace you was able to have cover pages, now with 7.1 you cannot have cover pages so I wondering can you edit your background videos to fit the full length of the website page or do you need css or html code to do it? I have tried both attempts and failed as my html code would not source the video , so it would just come up blank on squarespace. If I cannot fit the full length of the website can I at least edit my video to fit inside the container and not get cut off, some of my photos in the video i made get cut off because of this "full bleed" option even when clicking on insert it still does not help. Also I do not want to embed my video like posting it on YouTube I want it to autoplay and loop in the background, I am able to accomplish this in visual studio but not squarespace

You can upload a background video (less than 60 seconds) directly to a section background on Squarespace 7.1. For more information see: Uploading videos to your site.

To make the video full-width and full-height (like a cover page) you will need to add some CSS, but if you post a link to the page when you've added the video, the community should be able to guide you.
