Kreatura Media's LayerSlider is one of the best and most cost effective choices for making your page(s) stand out from the rest!
LayerSlider can do incredible things! With impressive animation that will definitely catch visitors' attention.
The (much improved) Play By Scroll feature, combined with the Parallax feature, and Hover Transitions can do things that no YouTube (or hosted) video alone can. Respond to the movement (and clicks / taps) of your visitors' mouse, or tilt of their phone. Of course you can insert video content into your slider as well, and wow your visitors in ways that no other sliders I've seen, can.
(I recommend Visual Composer builder, included with all highly compatible premium themes. But a simple free theme, with your [layerslider id="1"] element tag, pasted into your basic WordPress editor, is all that you absolutely need, to impress your visitors.)
If you know how to code, and use the API (I don't.) the sky is the limit. But even without using the API, with your logo (including .svg images if you've tweaked the WordPress Media folder to allow them, by adding the mime_type to functions.php), and maybe a few simple graphics (especially transparent png images) you can do things that your visitors have never seen before.
If you have a great idea for a new feature or modification, for the purchased version, submit a kreatura.ticksy.com ticket, and they might just implement it. (They've implemented two of my suggestions, and fixed all the issues I pointed out. Yeah, I've been a pest, but they always responded professionally, in a business day or two.)
See their importable demos for some ideas:
And their documentation for a grasp of what you can do.
(I wish they'd put all sections in one searchable page.):
