Sometimes it’s useful to have a video playing in the background of an Elementor section. You can take your URL from anywhere, or you can upload it to your own server. In the example below, I downloaded a short video from Pixabay , And uploaded it to a different server.

To use it as a background,

  1. I hovered over the section and then clicked on the Edit Section ‘button’
  2.  In the Elementor toolbox I clicked on the Style Tab
  3.  Then background, and then the camera tab
  4. Finally I added the URL for my video to the Video Link field.
Note that the video won’t play if your visitor has auto-play videos turned off.
