30 Relevant Design Examples of Video Backgrounds

It’s often the little details that really take a layout from good to amazing. Button styles and colors aren’t enough – you have to consider the value of icons, photos, and definitely videos. Background elements can add depth and layering to an otherwise simplistic design.

Video backgrounds are insanely popular now that video recording is much more commonplace. But not every video can work as a background – you have to consider how a video fits into the website’s overall theme. Video background techniques can also vary based on certain libraries and their level of browser support.

    Really good listing.

    Today, a design without relevant background is like a desktop without an operating system. Background helps in making any complex content look beautiful. Visuals have an outstanding ability to engage people for a longer time. Selecting a background that is relevant to the topic is vital. Use a background that enhances user experience and help them to connect to the content.
