  2. Right-click the row or column you'd like to add this background to, then click "Edit Design".

Considerations

  • Background videos will not play sound.
  • Videos can take time and bandwidth to load and can distract users from important links or text on your page, so use videos sparingly.
  • Consider reducing the opacity of the video background to make the effect more subtle.
  • When adding a Dailymotion video that is part of a playlist, make sure to only add the direct link to the video (and omit the playlist parameter, which looks something like this:?playlist=x1x2f3). If your video’s URL has this parameter, just remove it. For example: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x60ktex?playlist=x5x6f2 would be https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x60ktex
