Hi theefarmer! I would love an option to use Livestream video if possible, as I just noticed that you’ve added additional video source options, which is awesome!

If you need any info regarding Livestream, just let me know, I’m happy to provide some info and embed code examples if it’s helpful.

Hello TC3,

I’ll look into it for a future release. If you can provide more info that would be helpful. Please contact me via my contact form or email me.


does this support rtl ?


Officially I can not say it does. But I’ve done some preliminary testing and it seems to be working on RTL. But again I haven’t tested it fully to officially say it does. Hope this helps.

Any other questions please let me know.


With this plugin, am I able to target a specific DIV for the video background, or is it full screen only?

Hello TheFrameGuy,

Currently it is full screen only. If you know jQuery and CSS you can customize it to target a specific DIV without a problem. I’ll add such a feature in a future release but no ETA on it.


Good day – Are playlists supported (e.g. vimeo, youtube)? Full screen gif animations? Thanks, Faisal

Hello fhumayun,

Playlist are not officially supported at this time. Gif’s should work. I have had several users used them, I have not tested them on the slideshow function myself thou. You can select to randomize the videos. When you have more than one video background for a posts, then every time you browse that post UMBG will randomly select one of the selected videos to play. This setting is site-wide. Meaning it will randomize the videos of all UMBG posts if they have mor ethan one selected for it.

If you need further clarification please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you for your inquiry.


Many thanks for the fair, honest and helpful responses. One last question: UMBG doesn’t bundle any stock video samples – so for first time dabblers like myself, is there an example online repository of stock videos ( are these adobe after effects media files? ) that I can use.


With UMBG you can use YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, DailyMotion, and HTML5 Videos.

You can check out:
Pexels Videos

Just do an online search for stock videos. Good luck!
