See how it works on the demo site.
Simple to Use
Unlike other plugins that make you go all over your WordPress website to find where you want to insert your shortcode, with UMBG you simply select where you want it to display right from the media background’s ‘Add New’ or ‘Edit’ screen.
Admin pages are styled to match the rest of WordPress administration pages so everything matches with what you are familiar with.
If you need to uninstall the plugin, it does not leave any files on your server or any data in your database. It will completely remove everything associated with it and will not leave any “junk” cluttering your site, specially your database. Uploaded media files (images/videos) are the only files that UMBG will not remove.

What media can I use?
With UMBG you can use videos, images, or colors to display beautiful full screen backgrounds. Supports HTML5 videos and hosted videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and Wistia. You can also use multiple images to create a full screen slideshow.
Does it work on mobile devices?
Mobile devices do not autoplay videos but UMBG replaces them with a poster image that you pre-select. You can use UMBG’s mobile device options to enable or disable displaying on mobile devices.
What UMBG does not do?
UMBG is not a media editor. It only lets you use the media you select as a full screen background and helps you adapt the media to a page with the available options. For media needs that go beyond what UMBG can do please use a media editing software to modify the media file further or consult the proper professional.
Does it include videos or images?
UMBG does not include any media. It does not include any videos or any images. You must use videos from the supported video hosting websites or use an HTML5 video or upload your own images to use with UMBG. Only the overlay patterns are included with UMBG.
UMBG requires WordPress 4.0 and greater, as well as, PHP 5.2 and greater.
