Video to start after text has been displayed

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by Boxwell, Aug 15, 2017.

    Hello,

    My client has a website setup using the Goodwin theme for Wordpress.(https://themeforest.net/item/photography-video-goodwin-wordpress-theme/11709544).
    There is a video playing at the start. They want some text to appear before the video.

    Can anyone recommend the most effective way to do this? Would I use some coding on the page template, or is there any plugins that can delay content and chain content together?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    hello @Boxwell ,

    Here's my idea: (I will use/add custom one)
    1. Make the html5 video 'pause' by default
    2. Create the container/div that's overlapping the entire video (this will be the container for your custom text you want)
    3. Create the JS/jQuery:
    - to add delays on the overlay text
    - then after the delay, you may now hide the overlay text
    - then you trigger the play() of the video

    I hope this help.

    Excellent, thanks for that. I don't program in JS or JQuery but hopefully will find a tutorial online to do this delay. Many thanks,

    Graeme.
