half-page width for background video on desktop

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.opalbuild.us/

Hello! I'm trying to have a background video just take up the left half of the page, so that text can accompany it on the right side of the page. Can someone help me with some code to do this? (this setting wouldn't apply to mobile, just desktop and tablet)

Right now, the video is hosted on vimeo. I'd like it to be a background video instead, to get rid of the player controls and to have it autoplay. (alternatively, maybe this can be achieved with code?)

#1. You mean increase video width & remove white padding around video?

#2. Try adding video with Code Block > use this code

<video width="100%" height="240">
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.

replace movie.mp4 with direct video url
