Wix Editor: Adding and Setting Up a Transparent Video

4 min read
Set your website apart and wow your visitors by adding or uploading your own videos with transparent backgrounds, and placing them anywhere on your site.
Transparent videos let you create beautiful, dynamic effects that make a huge impact on your site. The video background is invisible, allowing you to stack videos and create amazing visuals that jump right off the page. Customize the design, behavior, and colors of your video to suit your needs.

Adding a transparent video

We have a huge range of eye-catching transparent videos ready for you to add to your site. You can add a video from the Decorative and Video & Music panels in the editor. Choose a video from the Wix libraries or even upload one of your own.

  1. Click Add    on the left side of the Editor.
  2. Click Decorative or Video & Music.
  3. Click Transparent Video (scroll down and click More Transparent Videos to see the full menu).

Uploading your own transparent video
