Background videos could be partially supported through two different techniques - an overlay layout with two assests, or a HTML with Video asset
|Device||'Overlay' Layout||HTML with video||<video> Element||Animated gif|
Works with major issues.
Anything in your html which is not coloured or pure black, will be replaced with video. Unsure of threshold, #010101 will get replaced
Partially transparent parts of the html will not display the background video - instead it will blend it with pure black.
The video file will continue to replace black pixels in following html assets in the schedule
|Not supported - shows poster image||Plays but is choppy|
Works with issues.
On every second play through of a HTML with Video asset, it will just play the video, and not display the html.
RGBA will be first blended with black before being blended with the background. e.g. 50% white will come out as transparent grey.
|Works perfectly||Plays smoothly|
|iPad||Not supported - will skip in schedule||Does not autoplay||Plays smoothly|
The animated gif was tested with a 14mb 720p gif - to get a full background a much much larger gif must be used (at least 12x resolution). Doubt it would work.
