A YouTube slider gives a nice visual impact

You can choose a video to be the background of your whole slider, or it can be a video for separate slides. There are also YouTube, Vimeo and HTML5 layers, what you can put anywhere. You can combine these layers’ functionality with the autoplay of your slider. For example, the autoplay can stop, when the video is playing, and continue when it’s done. You can also put videos inside lightboxes, which you can trigger from a play icon. This way you can save some space on your slides and also improve your loading time.

You can even create a YouTube slider which shows the videos of your YouTube channel. If your videos are not on your channel, you can display search result of a certain keyword. The YouTube dynamic slide generator will automatically update your slider after the given time. This means your YouTube slider will be up to date without you having to make any changes.

Some tips to create a stunning YouTube slider

You should always give control to your visitor to play, pause or mute your videos. If you use YouTube, Vimeo or just self hosted video layers, let the users make the choice to handle these videos. If you automatically start them, set the volume to mute. Have you ever visited a website which started to “scream” on your speaker? There is nothing more annoying, when you go to a website and it starts to play music or other sounds.

Have the design of the video reflected the design of your website, as everything you see is connected. If you don’t have one, what you think would be okay, search for “royalty free videos” on the internet. There are tons, and a lot of them are really nice looking, so I’m sure, you would find one or more appropriate to your website.

Limitation of creating a YouTube slider

Mobile devices and tablets have a limitation, it is that you can’t autoplay videos on them. This limitation happens because of the common usage of mobile internet. On mobile devices only a user’s action can start a video in your YouTube slider. Because of this, even if you set your YouTube video to play automatically, it won’t start until the user taps on the play button.
