Video in slider, no navigation or next?

Hi there

Been using your excellent slider for a while, now i am considering to get a license for my employer's website. We want to use it also for displaying videos so I have a few of questions:

1. is it possible to add video as background with a url from, for instance youtube?
- if not, do you plan to support this? asking because it is possible to add video in the foreground (timeline insert)

2. if one ads a clickable video in the foreground and click play, the video screen expands to full slider size
- how can one skip the playing and return to slider?
- is there a way I've not seen to add next/previous or stop functions?

3. is it possible to adjust the size of the video forground size?

4. Dragging it across the slider i can only move the video withing certain boundaries, i.e. not over the entire slider (from left to right)
- where can this be adjusted, if possible?

5. if uploading video as background, does it preload the entire file or (hopefully) just a part of it? File might get pretty large

Thanks :)

1+5: Yes, we are working on this new feature and hope to release the updated version at the end of this month. There will be 2 playing mode for background video: 'Autoplay' and 'click to play'

2+3: We are not very clear about what you say. 

If you want to exist a video to move to next/previous slide, you now have to click on 'x' button to close the video first. There is no way to move to next/previous slide without closing video. We will update next and previous button for Full Slider (not Lightbox mode)

- Adjust foreground video: Do you mean the pop-up video when choosing "Lightbox" mode for video in Timeline setting? How do you want it to be?

4: We check but do not see any problem as you reported. Does it happen to your own site? So please, give us your site url and admin account so that we could check your issue.

Hi Cindy

Re #2: you answered this stating one has to click the x top right hand side (was in maintenanced mode so it was hidden under block/slider config). Looking forward to some next/previous functions in full slider mode!

Re #3: Was referring to the video box that is inserted (before clicking) and if there was a way to change its size. 

Re #4: I will return to that shortly.

Yes precisely! I don't seem to be able to drag the box to the edge of the slider. The size part was easy, thanks :)

I'm also interested whether it is possible to add a video as a background - fullwidth in the MD slider - like this example:

To almost use it like a video wallpaper?

Hi Roman282,

We do not support using video as background in megaslider. For now, we only have a custom version to have button next back in video mode.

Thank you.
