Capture attention from the get-go with an immersive Theatre Style Video!

Sometimes it’s hard to find the right slide theme that matches your message. This is where background videos can offer an easy way to break free from static themes and make your presentation feel branded, focused, and really slick!

You can easily drag and drop background videos into your presentation using CustomShow. Be sure to hide those video controls once the video is added to the slide.



  • Drag and drop the video onto the slide.
  • Resize the video to fit the screen by holding and dragging the edges.


  • Select the video
  • Use the Position properties or its edges to fit the slide
  • Set Show video controls to on hover.
  • Enable Start On Click to initiate video playback upon user interaction.
  • Turn Display play button onΒ 
  • (optional) Turn Advance after playback on

Congratulations! You are all done!
