Adding Background Videos

 

Adding background videos to your project is an easy way to enhance your design and make your projects beautiful and engaging. In Visme you can upload or embed your own videos or use one of Visme’s many stock videos as a background in your design to give it that extra sizzle. Here’s how:

 

Add Visme’s stock videos as background

1
From the editor window of your project, click on the canvas and navigate to the “Background” button at the top left corner.

2
You will see that there are multiple background options. Click on the “Videos” tab. You will be redirected to the “Media” area from where you will be able to choose a video from the Visme stock.

3
Use the search bar to look for a specific video and then click-and-drag the video over to the slide to use it as your background.

You can also hover over the video and click on the “Settings” icon. Then, click on the “Set as Background” button.

4
You’re done! The background video will be added to your project.

 

Add any video to the background

1
Once on the editor window of your project, go to the “Media” tab located in the sidebar along the left side of your screen and then click on the “Videos” button.

2
Once there, select the background video from the Visme stock library we have available. Or, if you want a video that you have already used or uploaded previously on the “My Videos” area. You can also embed an external video.
