Do and Don’ts When Using Free Video Background
Any video background on your website can reduce website speed, destruct important texts and messages or cause a drop in conversion rate. It’s therefore important to learn where to draw the lines when using background videos.
Here are the best five tips to help use free video backgrounds the right way.
- Use short video of low bitrate
To avoid buffering of the video and affecting the speed of your website page negatively, consider using background videos that are 2MB or less. A three-second video is good enough to make a website homepage or video background stunning.
- Use loopable video background
Setting your website background video to play in loops is one way of ensuring the video is short. The other preferred option is setting the video background to play continuously. This tends to work better as it does not affect the CPU functionality.
- Use slow-motion videos
Fast-moving video backgrounds are destructive and in some cases reduce the content conversion rate. To avoid visitors sticking to the video background for long, reduce the movements.
- Use compressed background videos
A compressed video has a low bitrate and therefore plays smoothly without affecting the page load speed. It’s good to compress the video to 720 pixels. Even though high pixel videos are of the best quality, avoid them completely.
- Use an overlay
To hide poor quality videos or very bright background videos, use an overlay on top of the video. A semitransparent overlay makes the video more attractive, engaging and creates more interest to look at, as the details are not clearly visible.
Advantages of Using a Video Background on Website/Video
There are many reasons you should use a video background on your website or video. Here are some of the reasons;
- You can use a video background to visually showcase your products
- After an adventure, the best way to share your experience is using your recorded video as a background on your landing page
- To make your website more appealing
- To engage and increase your contents conversion rate
- It’s human to be attracted to anything in motion. For this reason, website experts use motion backgrounds to grab the attention of the readers and hold them on the page for longer.
What Makes an Excellent Zoom Background?
An excellent Zoom background should be free from distractions. When you are conveying a video message, you expect your audience to focus and pay attention.
Therefore, it should have the right screen, colors, images, and, if necessary, the right video. A solid green screen in the back blends seamlessly with any backdrop.
Your backdrop will stand out when you wear solid and neutral-colored clothes. Avoid prints and plaids or dark black and sharp white-colored clothes as they portray you as a blob on camera.
A Zoom background represents your brand value, so you have to ensure it serves the meeting’s purpose.
By now, you must be ready to spice up your upcoming Zoom session with an elegant backdrop.
