    I’d like to feature a full-screen video on my home page, but I can’t figure out a way to do that within a StudioPress theme.

    I’ve seen a variety of new themes popping up around the web (like this – http://themetrust.com/demos/swell/ ), and I love this style of design. (Plus, this is for my video production company website.)

    Does anyone know how to easily adapt a full-screen StudioPress theme (like Parallax or Agency) to support full-screen video in a clean, efficient, responsive way?

    Thanks,
    Russ

    Where is the video hosted?

    This works for native videos uploaded to your media library

    I can host the video wherever it’s needed. I can put it on my server or hosted through Vimeo or YouTube.

    I’m not looking so much for a way to show full screen video, but rather to use it as a back ground for my main home page, and then layer in text over it.

    Big difference where you host it as the players add borders, controls etc.

    The easiest way is to self host it and use the shortcode to display it.

    Then you can layer text over the video using a widget
