How do I create a video backgorund?

I am wondering how to add video background to basic HTML and CSS pages as well as WordPress pages.

You can take a look at my site here that uses a full width video in the main div: http://arthurhead.com/excursion/

  • If you view the source code you'll see the following: html <video autoplay loop> <source src="http://goo.gl/iZN79I" type="video/mp4"> </video> In my css file I gave the video a width of 100% for full-width styling.
