One of my clients wants to have a video on the Home Page as a full screen background. I’ve been working on adding it to the colour section.
We now have a professional Film Editor cutting the movie for us and he asked what size/resolution the movie should be so it looks great on all devices including retina.
Do you have any recommendation for this? I saw that you recommend 16:9 ratio (or 4:3) but does that translate to in pixels? Or I don’t have to worry about that for movies?
Thanks so much.
You can upload the video to youtube and link it from there that will encode video properly and save you a lot of bandwidth as well or have it hosted on your own server.
In pixels the minimum it should be 1280px x 720px and max 1920 x 1080 px.
You can add any youtube video as background video and give it a try :)
Let us know if you have more questions.
Thanks so much for your quick reply. We were thinking of uploading it to Vimeo, I assume that’s the same result as Youtube.
So 1920×1080 will look nice and not pixelated on a retina screen?
Thanks for clarifying.
