20 Amazing Websites with Full Video Backgrounds

Backgrounds are usually considered an afterthought — a simple start or the final finishing touch of a typical web design. While subtle backgrounds can fortify the other facets of your design, and gorgeous eye-grabbing graphics can garner attention, there are ways to make your design’s background even more versatile and effective. Nowadays, some sites are using video to fill the entire backgrounds of their web designs, and you can too. Try deviating from conventional wisdom that dictates that your background be simplistic and static. In today’s showcase, I hope to inspire you with these websites that feature full video backgrounds.
