What's New Getting Started Drag and Drop Standard Builder Integrations

How do I use the Video Background Template?

Step 1: Select one of the Video background templates offered in the templates section of your Leadpages account.

You can find them by searching for “Video background.”

NOTE: At this time, video background templates are only available for use with our Standard Builder.

Step 2: Select “</> Dynamic Options” on the left side of the builder.


Step 3: Enter the URL where your video file is hosted, and the URLs where your desired background image is hosted. 


Each URL space features a set of instructions and requirements, which are listed below.

Background video URL requirements

  • A valid URL to your video file. 
  • The video file must be in “.mp4” format.
  • The video file must have “H.264, AAC” encoding.
  • The video file must not be larger than 720p (1280 × 720) resolution.
  • The video file must be as small as possible, to ensure faster load times.
  • The video file must not be letterboxed or contain any other framing.

Streaming videos (such as those hosted on services like YouTube or Wistia) are not compatible with video background templates. You must use a URL that links directly to a hosted video file. Amazon S3 is one option you may consider. 

Background Image URL

A valid URL to an image file for users who can’t play video. 

  • We recommend using an image file that matches the first frame of the video in its content and resolution.

Background Image URL (mobile)

A valid url to an image file for mobile devices. This file should be small for fast loading on mobile devices. (1024 × 768 px is the maximum size we recommend using.)

Step 4: Save your Leadpage.

If you’re unsure how to do this, check out this article in our knowledge base.

Step 5: You’re done!

You can see your finished product in the builder, or click Publish to view your page on the web.
