10 Top Looping Backgrounds for Videos and Displays

Read Time: 3 mins

Looping video backgrounds are short pieces of footage that can repeat seamlessly. They usually involve a series of patterns or something with relatively little movement that can be used as a pleasing background.

While you might have noticed looping backgrounds being used on websites, though this can be impractical, they’re more likely playing a formative but subtle role in short videos. If you’re creating a presentation, a blog video, tutorial or more, they can be really useful for adding interest and movement. Imagine you’re preparing a corporate presentation and it’s a little dry… adding a background that creates movement but doesn’t distract from the message can make the whole production more engaging.

You might want to green-screen interviews, or have news reporters green-screened against a background a map, for instance, or something related to what they’re talking about – a looping video works really well for this.

There are tons of looping video background options over at Envato Elements, and you can download and keep as many of them as you like with a subscription. Here are ten of our favourites.
