How to create code to embed a dropbox video


Hi there,

I have been looking at numerous forum posts as to how to upload a drop box video and make it my page background, I have tried so many different ways and have now totally confused myself.

This is the read only link to my page -

I am currently using Safari 9 browser

This is the video I would like to embed

I have been following this and have tried but obviously not writing the code correctly.

Please help! thank you.


To get the direct link to a video do this:

In your Dropbox dashboard right-click on the video you want and click Get share link (Something like that)
You will get a link that will look like this:


Now replace with:

so you will get:

So this is your link: (


I have now done this

<video autoplay loop style="min-width:100%; min-height:100%;" poster="/images/video.gif">
  <source src="" />
  <source src="" />
  <" />
  <img src="video.jpg">

and the video now appears within the website, but it is not responsive?


What i usually do is this: Section > div that covers the section > the html embed that covers the div.


Ok thanks but can a div become a whole background of the website?


Hi @julietcarmen, this is a good question and can be done with some styling. Can you post a new question with some screenshots of the trouble you're having when designing your embed? (this post appears to be more code focused.)

Thanks in advance!
