The New Age of Web Design: Video Backgrounds and Headers

They say a picture paints a thousand words. If that’s true, then what about video? In this article we explain the benefits of using stock footage to add a video background for your web page.

Here at Videvo, we aim to provide you with free HD stock footage that can be used and adapted in as many ways as possible – and this includes video for webpages. Whether you are designing a personal portfolio or customizing a company site, video can be a valuable addition to help make your webpage look polished, professional and ultimately stand out against others. And it’s now easier than ever before, particularly if you have access to a readily available source of free stock footage from yours truly.
