Videos With Great Design For Your Inspiration

One of the biggest trends in web design in 2014 is to reorganize your website’s content in order to swap lengthy text with informative video. It’s usually easier for your readers to follow an interactive video that stimulates them with both visual as well as audio, than read lengthy portions of text. This happens because a video has a way to attract your viewer’s attention and keep it focused for its full length that is hard to match through written text.

Videos are usually employed where product, services and brand presentations are concerned and it has been shown that they do have a much higher rate of success than any other form of presentation. Therefore, it has become common place for web designers and developers to include elegant and interesting videos in their websites. This trend has been known to go even as far as giving viewers Bluray-like experiences straight from their browsers through the use of full background videos and the like. There are a number of ways to include videos in your websites, like through Flash or HTML5, and designers as well as developers should take several things into account when integrating videos into their work. Amongst these would be the overall performance of the website, seeing as where videos are concerned the speed of the Internet connection is important, the profile of the website, for example an online store wouldn’t make use of videos in the same way a website for promoting a film would, and last, but not least, how the technologies you use behave on different devices with different resolutions and operating systems.

There are 4 main methods to include videos in a web page.

1. YouTube videos

The first and most widely used method is embedding YouTube videos in your pages. This way is fairly straight forward, you search out the video, you click on Embed, you copy the code provided by YouTube and you then paste it into your own page and your video is ready to be viewed.

2. Inline videos

Inline videos are another way to go, but the main problem with them is that some users may have inhibited inline videos from theirs browser’s settings and they can also prove to be rather tricky to control the way your video is played. What it basically boils down to is taking your video and embedding it into your HTML code using a <img> tag and your’re done.

3. Plugins

You can also go with plugins in order to add videos to your website and some of the plugins you can use are Windows Media Player, QuickTime or Real Media. With plugins you will be able to embed videos in your website using different codes depending on the plugin you’ve chosen and you will have complete freedom to set the parameters however you see fit.

4. Hyperlinks

This is probably the simplest way to go about including a video in your website, all you have to do is include a link to your video in a <a href> HTML tag and let your viewers click on it in order to see more.

In conclusion, we’ve rounded up some of the videos with the best design out there in order to inspire you, take a look.
