[Pro] Background Video

I was wondering if anyone knows how to implement full screen scalable background video running on their site. I have seen several flash scripts for sale that can do this, but there must be an easier/free workaround to get something like this up using Freeway.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I ve just post a similar thread in freeway forum! I think we are speaking more or less the same. Ive got not answer, but Ive thought and tried lots about this flash videos, mac and others….

I’ll copy what I’ve just written

“…. and my conclusions (that could be mistaken) are:

  • the best way to use video as background, or as a main design element is using flash video. You can insert this flash video as a swf, but iphone and ipad will not see it.

  • you can put an image under the video to be seen if the user is on ipad, but a jpg its not a video….

  • if you use another kind of video, like QT, it comes with the player, so its really horrible… if we are speaking of design.

So, now, for me, its impossible to make a site like http://www.chantalamui.com without using flash.

If any one knows how to make it, it would be really appreciated.
