When your site loads, it first loads the background color and then the
background image or video you chose. With slower internet connections or
larger background images or videos, there may be a delay of a second while
your background loads, causing a brief flash of the background color.

Currently, it is not possible to select the background color for videos that
you upload from YouTube or Vimeo.

In the meantime, you can change your background color and then replace your
colored background with your video.


* Wix videos come equipped with a suitable background color similar to the color of the video.
* You can select the background color for images.
