Hello All, Can I get everyone's opinion on using video backgrounds on the home page and /or also videos in home page sliders? With regards to SEO?

Question #1 - What's your opinion of video backgrounds on Home Pages?
Question #2 - Do they effect SEO ? I have searched google and have found conflicting opinions. I do understand they effect page load speed.
Question #3 - What's your tolerance for Page Load speed and sliders and video backgrounds?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer...I'm just a hobbyist building my own website. A Carpenter/construction site.

I do understand sliders and pop ups effect bounce rates, meaning people leave right away. But can it depend on the type of site/company?

For example a construction company or an Interior Design firm. When people are looking for a specific Trade ... images in a slide show.....can it be ok to use for such a website? I understand if one was to use a slide show, just have 2 or 3 slides of your best work.

I think I can do at least 10 ..... I think... ah crap....now I have to get off this lazy ass of mine and find out.
Whew.... lucky me, I can't find a place in the house to try it out. I'll keep everyone posted as soon as I do ;)

I've done skydiving and that was pretty cool and as well I did public speaking for 1/2 hr at a local college. I'd like to try base jumping one day.... maybe haha

Anyone got a list of fears?
