It used to be that videos would have taken 20-30 minutes to fully stream over dial-up Internet. But now people can browse YouTube and watch videos streaming from their phone with a 4G connection. This has paved the way for many video-integrated websites including fullscreen background videos.

In this gallery I’ve compiled a series of 30 brilliant websites featuring large homepage video backgrounds. Each layout is structured in a unique yet systematic way according to the video quality and color scheme. Fullscreen background video is a newer trend which has gained a lot of attention over recent years. Use this gallery for both design inspiration and generating cool new ideas in your own projects.
