Play a video file on the homepage

Greetings fellow elggers,

I would like to play a short video on the homepage.  This would be a video file I would like to purchase from iStock, and can be converted to the right format, such as 'flv', 'mpeg', etc.  The video file would be uploaded and stored on the server.  It should not have any playback controls,  it should just play and loop.

I sincerly appreciate any assistance anyone can provide.

Many thanks,


  • you take developer tools plugin + firebug  you looks in to firebug for views on your homepage.

    than you write a simple plugin with elgg_extend_view in start.php

    put your video in this plugin. you are ready.
