This looks familiar.

Still, don't know what to do about the full screen YouTube video clip to start automatically on page loaf

Any tips?

Thanks

Some browsers do not allow videos with audio to automatically start.
A possible solution is to remove the audio.

Note that this is unrelated to the software. It's a browser policy.

I tried using the YouTube object in full screen for a background video
I set it for auto-start, but - it just loads and waits for clicking the Arrow to start

https://squadron-125.org.il/BGvideo.html

What can I do?

Cheers
I thought most browsers disabled autostart.

Hi Alex,
There is a way around this but really need to see how you setup your page.
My way around this is to insert this code so an auto click on the video object / play button is executed after the page loads:

Code: Select all

<script>
$(document).ready(function()
{
$("#<id of video object or play button>").trigger('click');
});
</script>

Going back to the original topic, it is down to personal preferences which OS you use. I started with Unix, then OS/2, then Windows and finally switched permanently to Linux. I haven't looked back and being honest, the thought of using Windows again horrifies me.

WWB in Crossover looks just like it would in Windows, but without the costs and hassle. Quick'n'easy in Linux looks very similar to WWB although some of the functionality is in different places, for example in drop down menus instead of panels at the side but it is highly configurable and Pablo has done a wonderful job of making programs as compatible as possible. Don't think of it as an older 'undeveloped' version of WWB, it has all the essential features including FTP, responsive sizing and many extensions, lots of them identical to the Windows ones.

Brian.

Hi Rogerl

Yes, I thought about something like that, tried also all sorts of otherthings I found around.
It seems however that the Browser is blocking such an option

Thanks

Hello Brian,

OK, I created some space on my Surface Pro 3 Windows 10 and managed to install Umbutu 20.04

1) It really looks very much like an Apple Desktop
2) So, I downloaded a utility and made it look like Windows 10, my personal preference for now

I am researching some "Must have tools" and hope to find what I need (Outlook look-alike is one of them)

Thanks for your help

Alex

I tried that, the video :

1) Doesn't start - just shows as a frozen image of the video
2) It doen't fill up the browser, but shows in either 4:3 or 16:9

I am using this as a background video for the website

I much prefer to have the video clip itself located within my website instead of pointing to a YouTube clip

Please send me maybe a page example, on how to do it

Thanks
Alex

Hi Alex
To work autoplay video only can if convert him in Htnl 5 video / mp4 format. than you can have autoplay when page load

Video must be upload to web separate and use absolute link path

Here is some basic stuff from W3 schools

Code: Select all

CSS:
Insure 16:9 video or add appropriate background to page to cover white spaces

<style>
/* Style the video: 100% width and height to cover the entire window */
#myVideo {
  position: fixed;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  min-width: 100%;
  min-height: 100%;
}

/* Add some content at the bottom of the video/page */
.content {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: 0;
  background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
  color: #f1f1f1;
  width: 100%;
  padding: 20px;
}

</style>

HTML:
insert html object on page, insert html:

<!-- The video -->
<video autoplay muted loop id="myVideo">
  <source src="something.mp4" type="video/mp4">
</video>
<!-- Optional: some overlay text to describe the video -->
<div class="content">
  <h1>Heading</h1>
  <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
</div>

insert file publisher object
add file something.mp4

preview and see what happens
Hope that helps.

Sorry Roger
I have no experience with CSS code.
Will help if you can point me to a html complete page that I can see the entire code of how to use it.

My MP4 video clip is located in the root of the site. Can I use the web HTML5 video object? This will be my preferred option.

Thank you
Alex

CSS is how we style the objects on the page. We can add our own styling by inserting CSS via the ribbon menu under Page>Page Html>Between <head> / </head> tags then paste the CSS code in there and click okay.
If you already have your video in place then you won't need the file publisher but you will need to change the something.mp4 to your actual file name. Having said that, by not using the file publisher you won't be able to preview locally.You will need to upload to server then test live.

Hi Pajadt,
Just downloaded your example. Works well. I have not got into flexible grids etc as yet as came from the old school and have already re-written my site twice to cope with having to change software. Not having a project to work on now reduces the incentive to re-learn another way of doing things.
