Full Screen Background Video

Post by lbdesign » 13 Oct 2014, 06:37

Hi all - is there anyone clever who knows if I can add a full page video as a background for a portrait only App? It would need to sit behind other boxes/information that would sit on top of it.

Any ideas greatly received! Just leaning what's what with this.

Thanks!

Hi lbdesign,

did you try putting a video in a picture box in the background and interactive elements above it? Or what doesn't work please?

Thanks

Hi Matthias

I'm just starting out with App Studio so gathering help as I go. Are you thinking that adding a full page video and then having picture / test boxes on top of that would be doable?

Cheers

Hi lb,

the term fullscreen might be misleading, as fullscreen functionality means the whole screen is covered.

So create a picture box that is as large as your page and import a video that is as large as the box. Put other interactive elements on top.
That should work, though I am just assuming (haven't tested it).

Thanks
Matthias
