How to add a video to the banner on my website?

Adding a video to the banner or any section of your course site makes it more interactive and engaging.  However do note that since Google gives a very high rating to site page load speed and mobile responsiveness, adding videos on the banner section will significantly slow down the page loading speed which impacts your SEO ratings.

The other alternative is to add a video section in the banner as shown above and embed a YouTube/ Vimeo video. Since the video will load on click, the page loading speed will not be impacted.
