Video as hero on Debut theme

New Member

Hello everyone.

After countless hours of reading documentation and trying to Google my way to the answer I'm gonna give it a go here.

Our store currently uses the 'Debut' theme, and I'm having (even as a webdev) a hard time figuring out exactly how to do this in Liquid.
Ideally what we want is a .webm or embedded Youtube video to autoplay/loop as the hero, instead of a static image.

If anyone has run into the same "problem" then please feel free to share your solutions - ideally it wouldn't be dependent on out-of-the-box solutions that charge you monthly, but if that is truly the only way then I guess we'll just have to pony up.

Thank you so much in advance.
