Enliven Your Website Slides with Video


A new idea for the new year: add video elements to your website slideshow.

Slideshows are very common on modern websites. Slideshows or “sliders” allow content to move across a frame on a web page. Sometimes they have buttons and others move automatically, but they tend to showcase images that “slide” from one side to another within the frame (thus the name).

Most slideshow content is images. But you can have video in a slider, an interesting way to bump up the appeal of the website. Information on how, and what makes a good video slider is available at the MiniMatters website: http://minimatters.com/blog/website-sliders/

If you try this, or find good examples, please share.
