Add Header video in York Template

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://pipecamara.squarespace.com/config


I use York template and I want to show a video reel in the main page header.

I've found an old code but it doesn't play anything:

<video width="100%" height="43.75%" id="identvideo">
<source src="/s/in-the-pr-room.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="/s/in-the-pr-room.ogv" type="video/ogg">
<img src="/s/in-the-interiors-pr-room.jpg" width="100%" height="43.75%" id="mobilefallback">


<script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>
$( document ).ready(function() {
function play_video(){
 window.setTimeout( play_video, 1500 ); // 1.5 seconds 

I want to embed a video from vimeo in the header, any tips?

You shouldn't need code to play a Vimeo video as a background video in the header.

See Adding background videos.

Thanks for answering! But Ive tried all the steps I found in the forum but no one works.

I have this CCS code:

#header {
  position: sticky;
  top: 0;
#canvas {
    max-width: 100% !important;
#header {   
    background: white;

Maybe this doesnt allow videos in bg
