• What are main concerns of using videos in headers?

  • Arandeep Woodard: "Anyone using video in your headers? Playing around a little and they look great. Wondering about main concerns ie slowing the site down (which I don't think it does due to being loaded last), user experience and concerns about eating up users data when not on wifi."


    Nexus Themes: Based on your description "video in headers" alone there are a lot of red flags going off for me.

    It's a best practice to make videos only part of the main content in a way that makes sense for the visitor.

    I would read up on Normal Nielsen's article on the subject of video usage in websites and come to your own conclusions.
