Hello @lukkaa ,

We are AliReviews - All-in-one reviews solution to all businesses.


If you're having trouble creating high-quality WebP images from other image file formats, there are a few options you can try:

  • Use a different image editor:  Some popular options that support WebP include Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, and ImageMagick.
  • Use an online image converter: There are many online tools that allow you to convert images from one format to another, including WebP. Some popular options include CloudConvert, Online-Convert, and Convertio.
  • Use a specialized WebP converter: If you need to convert large batches of images to WebP, you may want to consider using a specialized converter tool such as WebPconv or WebPonize.
  • Optimize your images: If you're still having trouble creating high-quality WebP images, you may want to try optimizing your original images before converting them to WebP. This can include resizing the images, reducing their color depth, or using a different compression algorithm.

Hello @lukkaa,


I am Gina from flareAI app, and I am here to support you.

You can use a YouTube video as a background video in Shopify by embedding the YouTube video on your website. Here's how you can do it:

1. Find the YouTube video you want to use as your background and copy the video URL.

2. In the Shopify theme editor, navigate to the section where you want to add the video background and add a new HTML section.

3. In the HTML section, paste the following code, replacing the "YOUR_YOUTUBE_VIDEO_URL" with the YouTube video URL you copied earlier:

<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

This code will embed the YouTube video and set it to loop and autoplay with no controls or related videos displayed.

4. Customize the HTML section as needed, including adjusting the section height and width to fit your theme.

Keep in mind that using a YouTube video as a background can impact website performance and load times, especially if the video is large or the user has a slow internet connection. It's also important to ensure that you have the right to use the video and that it doesn't violate any copyright or other intellectual property laws.

You could use the Files section in your admin, this way your file is hosted on Shopify's CDN and makes use of shopify's caching and optimizations, but if you want it to come with a player, maybe Youtube and uploading it as unlisted?
