Flaticon is also a @font-face iconset that allows you to change size and color of the icons just using CSS.

The HTML5 <video> element specifies a standard way to embed a video in a web page. You can play a video in your webpage background or any section.  You can host video form root server or can add link form other server. 

For browser support you have to provide two format video(.webm/.ogg and .mp4)

The markup:

<video class="text-center" muted="" autoplay="" loop="" poster='assets/videos/christopher_smith.png' >
  <!-- WebM/VP8 for Firefox4, Opera, and Chrome -->
  <source type="video/webm" src="assets/videos/christopher_smith.webm">
  <!-- MP4 for Safari, IE9, iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows Phone 7 -->
  <source type="video/mp4" src="assets/videos/christopher_smith.mp4">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.
jquery.mb.YTPlayer - use a custom youtube player for a video as background on jQuery framework.
This is a jQuery component that let you play a Youtube® movie in a chromeless player.
You can even use a movie as background of your HTML page.
Important notice!
The plug in works only if used under a web server. It doesn’t work if you run the HTML page as file (file://…).
If you want to run it locally on your computer you need a web server installed (for ex: MAMP for Mac, XAMP for Windows,LAMP for linux) and reach the file from http://localhost… or whatever you mapped in the Host file as localhost.
HTML Markup:
<a class="player" 
addRaster: true,
showControls: false,
stopMovieOnBlur: false


*data-property is an attribute of the TAG where you can pass the settings of the player.
