Background video banner freezes when you play the main Vimeo video

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum!

About a month ago, the video banners on top froze when the main Vimeo video is played. The video banner on top is also a link from Vimeo. There's no option to upload a banner video as this feature only works with links on the Squarespace Panel.

Please check the video below and also you can see the issue on this link: https://davidzamorano.tv/human-rights 

Hope this makes sense. 

Thanks!

David

use this code to Code Block

<video width="100%" height="500" controls>
  <source src="https://www.w3schools.com/tags/movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.

Thanks, Tuanphan. How could I add a Vimeo link to that code? It didn't work for me to replace the video link you have:

Thanks!

If you have Vimeo paid account, you can get video direct url

If you have free account, you can download video then upload to SS site then get video url

Thanks, Tuaphan.

I have a Vimeo Plus (paid account) and it looks like I can't get the direct .mp4 links.

What is an SS site? 

Thanks, David

Thanks, Tuanphan. Yes, I saw that video.

Those settings are available on the PRO account, (I have a PLUS).

Hi everyone,

It seems like the freezing issue with the background video banner linked from Vimeo might be a compatibility glitch between Vimeo and Squarespace. Since the banner only works with links, troubleshooting options might be limited.

However, to maintain an engaging website experience, consider experimenting with the Castle app, which offers versatile solutions for incorporating captivating visuals seamlessly into your web design. By exploring different tools and platforms like Castle, you can mitigate the impact of technical hiccups and ensure a smooth user experience for your visitors.

Thanks!!
