Ultimate Media Background

Display full screen media backgrounds

You can display full screen video, image, and/or color backgrounds. Support’s videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, Dailymotion, and HTML5.

Simple to Use

Unlike other plugins that make you go all over your WordPress website to find where you want to insert your shortcode, with UMBG you simply select where you want it to display right from the ‘Add New’ or ‘Edit’ screen. No shortcodes needed.

Admin pages are styled to match the rest of WordPress so everything matches with what you are familiar with.

If you need to uninstall the plugin, it does not leave any files on your server or any data in your database. It will completely remove everything associated with it and will not leave any “junk” cluttering your site, specially your database. Uploaded media files (images/videos) are the only files that UMBG will not remove.
