Is there any way to put a video background in the body of a entry or a page, or in the page header but not from the beggining of the site header (for instance below the menu items) as it seems to be th only way by the “Merge with site header” option?
Thanks in advance for your help!

You could try manually adding your video background into the area you need it: https://slicejack.com/fullscreen-html5-video-background-css/March 18, 2017 at 10:58 am #293947Xavier
Thank you Tom for your quick answer!!
The post link you attached mentioned the way to use full screen video on th back ground, but what about having a video background of an smaller and specific dimension?
Thanks again for your help!

You can try to edit the CSS that link provided from
width: 100%;to something like
If this doesn’t work are you able to provide a link to your site so we can see what you have so far?

Video backgrounds are typically meant to cover the containing area where they appear (usually full screen, full section etc..). Might be difficult to force it to only cover one specific area.March 23, 2017 at 2:17 am #296184Xavier
Many thansk Leo amb Tom for your answers.
I Tried to use the html and css of the link but It does not work.
What I would like to do is to use the video background just below the menu item in the site, because the video background in the header does not hace a clean image of the items of the menu. That’s what i tried to do by purchasing the GP them because in the demo videos It was clear that it was easyly configurable an adaptable, and I do not know if here is any trick to achieve what I am lookin for with the GP theme.
Now I am making the first tries in a “testing” site for my new company website. I can send you the link in a private message if you would like to take a look to what I mean.
Thanks for your help

Sure, send your site using the account issue form: https://generatepress.com/contact/
Also, a link to an example of what you’re trying to do would help.
