Adding a video to the blogger background

Adding a video to the blogger background

So, are you tired of those pictured or colour backgrounds for your blog and want to do something more creative than the only answer is a video background. You can make your blogger background live with a video background. Whenever a visitor visits your blog they start automatically and increase user attraction. However, keep in mind everything come with a drawback and the drawback is that these background video can slow down your site loading. But, if you still want to use a background video I will suggest using a short optimized video.

How to add video to blogger blog background?

Step1: It's a simple and easy step, upload your video to YouTube or choose a video from YouTube.

Step2: Note down id of video from the address bar.

Step3: Now, Go to blogger > Theme > Edit html , Search for <body and add below line of code after <body .


Your code should now look something like this

<body id='wrapper-video' expr:class='&quot;loading&quot; + data:blog.mobileClass'>

Step4: Search for </head >, Paste below codes just above it and change red bold text with YouTube video id you saved in Step2.

<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
<script type='text/javascript'>
