Video Banner for Sensible Pro via Media Uploader

Scroll down the page for detailed instructions

Please select the Home Page – Video template file for your Home page. Then upload your video files to the WordPress Media upload section, copy and paste the URLs (ex: video_banner.mp4) of the video files in the appropriate fields. If you leave them blank then the featured image of this page will be used instead. It is advised that you convert your video to mp4, webm, and ogv for full browser support, you can find more info on that here.

Video will only play on desktop screens, as mobile devices do not support them. On mobile the featured image is displayed (so you should always set one) and it should be at least 1920×1000 in size for best appearance..
