Video backgrounds for sliders

You need to ensure you upload the video files in all 3 formats to ensure that it shows correctly on all machines inc mobile devices.

  • WebM
  • MP4
  • OGG (/OGV)

Note you also need to upload an IMAGE so that if the machine being used can’t play video for some reason then it will show a picture rather than a broken link/big blank space.

RESOURCE: Use http://www.online-convert.com/

Note that you can use this one website to convert the file from the type you have already (WebM, MP4, or OGG/OGV) into both the other formats.  The website is pretty intuitive: it uploads the file, queues it for processing, then saves the converted file back to your computer when done (as long as you leave the browser window open). Enjoy!
