  • Videos take a few moments to upload regardless of your internet connection speed. As your video is processed, the file is being transcoded, meaning converted and resized, to play in the highest quality on any screen. Processing time may increase for especially long or high quality video uploads. Your video won't appear on your site until the uploading process is complete. For best results, check out the video file guidelines.
  • Video backgrounds play without sound. If you want to display a video with sound, we recommend that you use a different element, such as Wix Video, Pro Gallery or the video player. 
  • We do our best to accommodate any aspect ratio that you upload for background videos. However, there is no guarantee that your video will look correct or play properly if you upload a particularly unusual aspect ratio, such as 19:321.
  • Large, high quality videos might lead to an increase in your site's loading time.
