Video in the background of a website is becoming more and more popular. We can say that, this is one of the trends in web design in 2015. Hosting however videos on your website can be difficulty, if you have a shared hosting account and your website holds a good amount of traffic. Reloading the video multiple time, can quickly eat up your allowed monthly bandwidth. To reduce the amount of bandwidth your website is consuming you can host the video on Youtube. And here is where our Joomla module comes in handy.

If you want to insert a Youtube video in the background of your Joomla website, just download and install this module. The setup of the JAW video BG module is very simple.

youtube video background joomla website

Simply add the url of the youtube video you want in the background of your website, set the starting time of the video, set the opacity and publish the module on any module position you like. I would recommend publishing the module on a position that has no style, this way your website users will not even notice its location, will just enjoy the nice video in the background.

Please keep in mind the this module is using jQuery library, so if other extensions on your website are also loading jQuery, make sure you will only load once, otherwise the module will not work, or it may cause problems with otherĀ  modules.

As usual if you have any questions or have found any problem with the module, please submit your observations in the comments bellow.

    I am very interested in using this module.

    The demo link does not seem to contain the module.

    Also, I have installed the module and set it up as described above and nothing seems to happen.

    Is this module still working?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
