Elementor Background Video Changes on Container Hover 1


  • Works for all video sources (YouTube, Vimeo, Self Hosted)
  • Made with the new Containers (lightweight structure)
  • Design your hero content however you wish (any and all element can be added, it will still work)
  • Smooth transition between videos
  • CSS only design
  • Desktop only

It can be done with the old sections and inner sections, however it makes it very DOM heavy. So I waited until the new container was out to publish this one.

Let's get started!

  1. Hi! How would I modify this code if I want the "click here" button to be the hover trigger, instead of the e-con class? I've tried adding this jquery, but I can't get it to work.

    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    $('.dce-posts-container .dce-item>* a').hover(function() {
    $(this).closest('.elementor-background-video-container').css('opacity', 1);
    }, function() {
    $(this).closest('.elementor-background-video-container').css('opacity', '');

  2. Hey Melanie!

    It's a bit beyond the intention of this tutorial (which is CSS only), however try this. I haven't tested though:

    document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
    $('.dce-posts-container .dce-item>* a').hover(function() {
    $(this).closest('.elementor-background-video-container').css('opacity', 1);
    }, function() {
    $(this).closest('.elementor-background-video-container').css('opacity', 0);
