Homepage Video Banner Issues

I am trying to add a video onto my homepage banner to replace the current image banner, but have been unsuccessful thus far and really need some help!

Since my theme does not support a banner video, I coded the video as a new section on the homepage with instructions from this article https://help.groupthought.com/article/221-video-add-an-mp4-looping-video-to-your-homepage , but this coding created some formatting issues on the site. For example:

  • the video got added as a new section on the homepage but did not replace the banner image, so the video and banner image are conjoined
    • if I 'hide' the banner image, the section below it gets messed up
  • a new random section is showing at the bottom of the homepage above the footer
  • it appears that the menu is cutting into the top of the video
  • the audio in the video is not working

How can I address the issues above (see images attached for reference)? Do I need a new code, or do I need to add more space for the video banner? And how do I get audio to work?

I did the coding on a backup version of the site so I can start from scratch if need be. Also, I don't know anything about coding, so I'd really appreciate all the help in advance!
