The Galleria theme comes with some great video options for your home page.  Let's take a look at these options in more detail.  There are two types of play options for your video.


Autoplay

With this option enabled, your video will automatically play in the background as your customer visits the page.  This is ideally suited as the first section on your home page, as the video will play in the background and you can overlay some text on it.  The text will appear near the bottom of the video so as not to obscure it.  The video will be stretched to fill in the height you specify and will play without audio, so you will want to choose a more cinematic video where sound isn't important.  Check out mediaBOOM for some inspiration.  If this is the first section of your home page, you can also overlay your header and navigation on top of it by enabling the Overlap header content option in your Header section settings.



Play on click

With this option, you may select a background image as a preview for your video.  The text you enter will appear centered vertically and horizontally on the image along with a play button.  When the play button is clicked, the video will play right in the window with sound and all the controls you would expect from a video on YouTube or Vimeo.  This is a great way to showcase your brand, products, or whatever you want!
