A website with a background video is the cool new thing these days. I’m noticing more and more sites (like Paypal for example) using videos as site backgrounds. Today I decided I’d play around with this new design concept by adding a video background to my own site. I kept it simple by utilizing a WordPress plugin called mb.YTPlayer for background videos. Simple enter a youtube video URL of your choice and the plugin converts the video to a background on your site’s homepage.
