I would like to use a new thing on the site, i can show you exactly what it is. Please check this on the banner part of this site

If you go to to this web page and click on the play image it it opens a video, its really cool.. It has the play button that opens it and then the pause button closes it back.. i love it! Its a youtube video.

When the video is also running it has a button that works over the top as a link.

Can somebody shed some light on this for me please. I assume this is HTML5. any thoughts?

On that page, this is done using a Jquery plugin named 'Tubular'

Tubular is a jQuery plugin that lets you set a YouTube video as your page background. Just attach it to your page wrapper element, set some options, and you're on your way.

This is the official page
and is free for use.
