    How do you add a snow flake animated background

    Buon giorno from Wetherby UK...

    I'd like to be able to add an animated christmas snowflake background to this website
    www.philpotts.co.uk susing this animation http://footage.shutterstock.com/clip...s-perfect.html

    Now would i be right in thinking i'd add it to the body tag. If yes It would be good to get some basic pointers on what i should be mindfull of css wise (tiling effect etc) & what file format is best (gif etc)

    The thing is whilst i have added tiled background effects ive never added an animated backgrounds from shutterstock so some guidlines would be much appreciated.

    Grazie tanto,
    David

    You'd have to use the gif extension if you want the animation, as that's the only format that allows it. But the tiling is likely to be a mess, and using a gif for this is a little clunky, as you get a jump every 12 seconds.

    It might be better to consider JavaScript, something like this:
