5 Wonderful Websites for Free HQ Stock Footage
Nowadays, video backgrounds are very common in web design. If you take 15 minutes of your time and randomly browse the web, you are likely to visit a good number of websites that are using videos in the backgrounds in different sections on a single web page.
Most of the time videos are used instead of single images in the hero banner section. Or as backgrounds in various CTA sections.
It is obvious that this is one of the latest trends in the web design and if you want your website to follow the trends and be up to date, you might want to consider adding section where a video background is used creatively.
