Summer landing page

Add background video to your dating website for a great first impression

Video tends to attract more attention than plain text or image: it is both visual and animated. A video background theme will undoubtedly impress your site visitors and keep them entertained enough to want to sign up.

Summertime romance is in the air! Stay relevant by introducing the upbeat video theme for your website.

The 'Summer' video background theme can be added to a dating site built with PG Dating Pro as a landing page. The theme is optimized for view on devices smaller than desktop. On a smaller screen the video is replaced with a screenshot which acts as a static placeholder image for when HTML5 is not supported.

You can use your own video instead of the default one. To do that, convert your video into three formats: video.mp4, video.webm, video.ogv and upload them into directory landing/inc/video/ on your server. You should also replace the placeholder image: firstFrame.jpg.

This is how you can convert your video with ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i video.avi -b:v 1300k -vcodec libx264 video.mp4
ffmpeg -i video.avi -b:v 1100k -vcodec libvpx -an -f webm  video.webm
ffmpeg -i video.avi -b:v 3500k -vcodec libtheora -an video.ogv
ffmpeg -i video.avi -ss 00:10 -vframes 1 -r 1 -f image2 firstFrame.jpg

Animated background immediately attracts attention. If you mute the sound by default and add the Pause button to your page, it will make a nice experience for your site visitors.

They will also be able to download your dating mobile applications directly from this page.
