Replace slideshow

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hello! Thanks in advance for any help anyone is able to offer. I have read the docs about turning slideshow off, and that is handy, but what I am after is to replace that with a video player to display an animation.

I am now assuming that there is no pre-built solution in the template, but if anyone could tell me the best way to go about doing this, that would be awesome. Just a point in the right direction should do the trick.

Thanks

Hi

Is the animation a file hosted on your server or an external site?
What file format is the animation?

Cheers
Paul

So far this is what I have.... even tho I still have some work to do (adding the menu in a new place, fixing video background to flush with banner overlay, etc....

Not sure this template is going to work out for my overall desired effect :(

Hi there,
Yes thats possibly going to require a bit of customisation to get this working.

You can edit the tpls/blocks/background.php.

You should see the markup used for the slideshow there and perhaps you could just replace that with the embedded video object.

Thanks
