I’ve been looking at Full-screen Video Backgrounds for the last month or so. I really like them! And I’m sure some of my clients may ask for this feature. Although it is a bit decedent when it comes to the shear amount of bandwidth being taken up, it’s still very effective when used in moderation and within a good context.
There’s an article here about making your own full screen background player – so I’m going to have a look at that.
I’ve been working out things at: iopan.vacau.com – seeing how to use the plug-in’s, the jquery, the css… how to get a nice video going across browsers.. anyway. I’ll try and build my own background player at that site.
