Video Backgrounds

The concept is straightforward. Take your standard computer background image and use a looping video instead. The result is visually stunning. When I see these videos playing back they make me feel like I'm back where I took the video, relaxing on a beach or hiking in the woods. I put this page together to share my favorite looping background videos.

Using your computer is another option. You can download my videos and set them to play on your computer. On a PC you can use Push Video Wallpaper to turn your desktop background into a video. If you have a Mac you can set one of the videos as your background.

A digital photo canvas like Meural looks like a traditional picture frame, but it can play videos and is a great way to show off video backgrounds. There are many other great frames too. Just upload one of these videos to the frame and you are good to go.
