Do you think video web page backgrounds are o.k.? - dwhs - 11-13-2015 04:46 PM

We have a video now on our main page and it cuts the load time a lot.

What do you think about video web page backgrounds. Now sure if I can post a link sorry.

You can add a preview image (first frame) at first, and then after the page is loaded you can load the video.
