    I love the big high-res gifs on vimeo’s homepage, and I’m trying to make my own, but I can’t seem to get them to that level of quality without Photoshop shutting down in the rendering phase. Any suggestions?


    I personally have never worked with full screen videos on sites, nor GIF extensions.

    An example in use is source:

    <video class=”video js-background_video” muted loop>
    <source src=”../folder/yours.webm” type=”video/webm”>
    <source src=”../folder/yours.mp4″ type=”video/mp4″>


    A good source for you to look up is: Here

    It’s becoming a popular choice for design and looks promising, good luck on your site!

    Hopefully this is of use to you, and I’m making valid sense :)


    Are you talking about the background video (not a GIF)?


    Like this?

    That is generally accomplished with a video on canvas. It’s not just a big GIF… like @chrisburton is suggesting.

    This SICK thing about that is, you have full control over playback. You can pause, delay start, speed up, slow down, reverse, etc. Might come in handy.

    As for how they are loading so crazy fast, that is because they are being buffered.
