I want to have a full width video short video at the top part of a website page, as if it were a background.

I created a page with Pagebuilder CK and I put a "Video player" block in the row (and a short video clip inside - see attachment 1), then I set "full width" for that row. It worked fine.

But there are 2 issues:
1. I do not want the videoprogress bar to appear anywhere to the final user (but it appears - see attachment 2)
2. I want the video to restart by itself automatically (and not have to restart it manually)

Is it possible to achieve that using Pagebuilder CK?

Thank you in advance!
Marco

Hi
you can modify the video player to adapt it to your needs by using the override technique

this allows you to control the html code that is rendered in your page :)

The override technique requires the modification of code, and it is way out of reach to any non-professional website builder (like me), that is why I cannot even try to make that stuff working.

If and when I will find an alternate (easy) solution using other options (modules), I will post it for benefit of others.

Thank you all the same

I found the easy solution I was looking for (no coding required).
It is Simple Video Player

It is a MODULE that you should:
- first set (where is the video you want to show, if you want to see the controls in the front end, if you want autoplay and loop) (see attached picture 1)
- then you put inside a Pagebuilder CK module box (see attached picture 2)
