Vide

No longer actively maintained. I am not interested to maintain jQuery plugins anymore. If you have some fixes, feel free to make PR.

Easy as hell jQuery plugin for video backgrounds.

Notes

  • All modern desktop browsers are supported.
  • IE9+
  • iOS plays video from a browser only in the native player. So video for iOS is disabled, only fullscreen poster will be used.
  • Some android devices play video, some not — go figure. So video for android is disabled, only fullscreen poster will be used.

Instructions

Download it from GitHub or via Bower:

bower install vide

Include plugin:



Prepare your video in several formats like '.webm', '.mp4' for cross browser compatibility, also add a poster with

.jpg
,
.png
or
.gif
extension:
path/
├── to/
│   ├── video.mp4
│   ├── video.ogv
│   ├── video.webm
│   └── video.jpg

Add

data-vide-bg
attribute with a path to the video and poster without extension, video and poster must have the same name. Add
data-vide-options
to pass vide options, if you need it. By default video is muted, looped and starts automatically.
html

Also you can set extended path:

html

In some situations it can be helpful to initialize it with JS because Vide doesn't have mutation observers:

js
$('#myBlock').vide('path/to/video');
$('#myBlock').vide('path/to/video', {
...options...
});
$('#myBlock').vide({
  mp4: path/to/video1,
  webm: path/to/video2,
  ogv: path/to/video3,
  poster: path/to/poster
}, {
...options...
});
$('#myBlock').vide('extended path as a string', 'options as a string');

Easy as hell.

Options

Below is a complete list of options and matching default values:

{
  volume: 1,
  playbackRate: 1,
  muted: true,
  loop: true,
  autoplay: true,
  position: '50% 50%', // Similar to the CSS `background-position` property.
  posterType: 'detect', // Poster image type. "detect" — auto-detection; "none" — no poster; "jpg", "png", "gif",... - extensions.
  resizing: true, // Auto-resizing, read: https://github.com/VodkaBears/Vide#resizing
  bgColor: 'transparent', // Allow custom background-color for Vide div,
  className: '' // Add custom CSS class to Vide div
}

Methods

Below is a complete list of methods:

// Get instance of the plugin
var instance = $('#yourElement').data('vide');

// Get video element of the background. Do what you want. instance.getVideoObject();

// Resize video background. // It calls automatically, if window resize (or element, if you will use something like https://github.com/cowboy/jquery-resize). instance.resize();

// Destroy plugin instance instance.destroy();

Resizing

The Vide plugin resizes if the window resizes. If you will use something like https://github.com/cowboy/jquery-resize, it will resize automatically when the container resizes. Or simply use

resize()
method whenever you need.

Set the

resizing
option to false to disable auto-resizing.

Meteor

Install

meteor add vodkabears:vide

Usage

Because of how meteor renders templates reactively you will need to initialize manually for the templates you want to use vide in.

Template.templateName.onRendered(function() {
  this.$('#elementName').vide('fileNameWithoutExtension');
});
