Hey there and thanks for watching WPBeginner.
Today I’ll show you how to add YouTube video as full screen background in WordPress. To get started, just install and activate
the mb.ytplayer for background videos plugin. Then go to the settings mb.ytplayer to configure. You want to add the YouTube url of the video here and
fill out the other options throughout. I’m going to keep the defaults, and click save changes. Now we can preview it and if you don’t see your
video, its likely your theme has background color or a background image and you’ll want to remove that in
the stylesheet of the theme. Now if you want to have a video background
for just a post or page, just go to the new post that you want to add the video to and you’ll see this new button. Just fill out the parameters again and click insert shortcode when you are
finished. Now the video will play in the background
like you want on that post or page. I hope you liked this video and found it helpful. If you did, click on the like button below and leave us a comment.
