How to Add Background Videos to Layer Slides

When you’re using the Layer Slides feature in MetaSlider, it is possible to add video backgrounds to your slides. You will have a default image for your slide, but this video will show instead of the image.

  • Go to “MetaSlider” in your WordPress admin menu.
  • Edit an existing Layer Slide or add a new Layer Slider.
  • Click the “Video Background” tab.
  • Click the “Add new video source” button.
