Vadootv Player Video Background

Sridhar Katakam

Updated on May 06, 2021

Vadootv Player is a video hosting service that is currently on sale in Appsumo.

This tutorial provides the steps to set up Vadootv’s iframe to appear as a background for a section.

Generic instructions are given at the top followed by Oxygen-specific ones.

Step 1

Since there is no setting for disabling audio in Vadootv, if your video has embedded sound you might want to first remove it using a video editor.

coverr.co provides free videos that you could use for following along.

Step 2

Upload your video to Vadootv if you haven’t already.

Since we want the video to appear as a background let us turn off elements and controls from appearing.

In your Vadootv Player account, select your video > Customization

  1. Video watermark: off
  2. Play button: off
  3. Speed: off
  4. Playbar: off
  5. Autoplay: on
  6. Play in loop: on (optional if you want the video to continue looping)
  7. Bottom control bar: off
  8. Touch to play/pause: off

Step 3

Add this sample HTML in your webpage:

<section class="vbg__container">
<div class="vbg__video">
<iframe frameborder="0" src="https://api.vadoo.tv/iframe_test?id=PzCWMvccoMYEBrjvMaHALPSKKvKkyk6J" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="1" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" width="3200" height="1800">
</iframe>
</div>
<div class="vbg__overlay-content">

We are setting the first frame of the video as background image for the video container section so that it appears initially before the video finishes loading.

If you are on Mac, open the video in QuickTime Player, press Cmd + C, open Preview and press Cmd + N to have the first frame pasted and save it as a jpg.

For Oxygen users

Below is the 1-click Hydrogen code.

You need either Hydrogen Pack or Hydrogen Paste to paste the entire section in your Oxygen editor.
