Hi I have a problem with Internet Explorer 11 with video background http://once.fstry.com/ What the problem can be ?

This shouldn’t happen with the YouTube Video Backgrounds. The Video Background should hide the YouTube logo when playing the video.

Do you mind if you send us a Sample Page with the said problem? This way, we can check it out and see what’s wrong. Thank you!

Sorry I uploaded to vimeo and got fine. But the problem is video not working on cell phones. Is it any way to fix it ?

Hi there! Video Backgrounds are disabled in mobile. Since mobile browsers can’t support Video Backgrounds yet. But as a workaround, you can set a background image using Row Settings or Row Background and use it as a fallback image for mobile. :)

Hi, just bought the plugin in. Please can I check is it possible to set the parallax backgrounds to be 100% full width? Or is it meant to do this automatically, or maybe there is a setting for this? At the moment on smaller screens the images seem to be zoomed in.

Hi there! Yes, it is possible to set the Parallax Backgrounds to be 100% Full-Width. You can set it by either setting your Row as Full-Width via Row Settings or by adding a Full-Width row.

Please do note that your theme or template should also allow full-width for this to work well. Usually, theme comes with a full-width template to allow this behavior. :)


when using the video background, is there a hook available to modify the video used? The reason is that I have a bunch of videos I’d like to use and would like to choose them randomly from a list. So a hook would be helpful here…

Cheers, Guenter

See for yourself: www.animago.com

Thanks for showing us your site. We checked it and it doesn’t seem to randomize the video in our end. We’re not sure if you’ve changed your video background, or was it caching or the randomizer doesn’t work.

oh.. maybe a caching probem. I cleared the cache right now :)

This plugin looks exactly like what I’ve been looking for! :) I have one pre-purchase question: Can I use everything also within single (blog) posts (e.g. http://thechrisellefactor.com/2017/10/good-bye-minimalism/) or only on pages? Thanks!

Hi there! You can use the plugin both in pages, posts or custom post types. As long as the page or post type has enabled the Visual Composer’s Backend Editor. :)

Please do note as well that the display on your current post list is coming from Featured Images. The plugin will only add parallax, video background etc. inside the post itself. If you want it to be directly displayed in your archives, you might also need to do changes in your post archives.

Hello, I have a problem with a background image of a row which is not resizing on mobile view on iPhone. Hope you can tell me if your add-on for WPBakery can fix this?

See: http://www.feestuitjehoorn.nl/ scroll down to the row which starts with “uitje hoorn, bedrijfsuitje hoorn of bedrijfsfeest hoorn boekt u bij eenhoorn evenementen!” The problem is the background image of the city with statue. This image does not resize when seen on mobile devices.

I would like to know if your add-on can help me fix this before I purchase it.

With regards, Muriel Buis

Hi Muriel, the parallax plugin should resize background images for mobiles and will not zoom in like that. :)

If you want to check how our Parallax works, you can also view our Live Preview here: http://demos2.gambit.ph/parallax then go to the Parallax Backgrounds section for samples. The demo also comes with a backend demo when you click the Launch Demo, this will allow you to see how the plugin settings look like and try it out as well. :)
