You can add video as a background to Cover sections / Cover pages only. Your background video needs to be embed from Vimeo, which allow you to hide controls, mute and autoplay — perfect for video background. 


Step 1 - Start by uploading your video to Vimeo

  1. Create a Vimeo account at vimeo.com.
  2. Upload your video.
  3. Copy the video link. Example: https://vimeo.com/229426285


Step 2 - Embed the video on your Portfoliobox site

  1. Create a cover page or add a cover section to an existing page.
  2. Click on Edit Image.
  3. Click on Change content then Change. The current image is now deleted.
  4. Click on Add image or video.
  5. Click on Import from: Vimeo | Youtube and choose Vimeo.
  6. Paste the video link and click on Import.
  7. Change the cover image (optional) and click Add.
  8. The video is now added as a background video.


Step 3 - Video settings

By default the video settings for cover pages/cover sections are the following: 

  • The video covers the entire screen.
  • The video is muted.
  • The controls are hidden.
  • Auto Play is on: the video will start playing automatically.


You can change these settings:

  1. Click on Edit Image.
  2. Choose Video Settings.
  3. Edit the settings and refresh your browser.
