Code snippet to add YouTube video as a background for you HTML tag.

Here goes your HTML:

<div class="video-background">
    <div class="video-foreground">
      <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/W0LHTWG-UmQ?controls=0&showinfo=0&rel=0&autoplay=1&loop=1&playlist=W0LHTWG-UmQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
    </div>
  </div>
 
<div id="vidtop-content">
<div class="vid-info">
	  <h1>YouTube background here!</h1>
  </div>
</div>

* { box-sizing: border-box; }
.video-background {
  background: #000;
  position: fixed;
  top: 0; right: 0; bottom: 0; left: 0;
  z-index: -99;
}
.video-foreground,
.video-background iframe {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  pointer-events: none;
}
#vidtop-content {
	top: 0;
	color: #fff;
}
.vid-info { position: absolute; top: 0; right: 0; width: 33%; background: rgba(0,0,0,0.3); color: #fff; padding: 1rem; font-family: Avenir, Helvetica, sans-serif; }
.vid-info h1 { font-size: 2rem; font-weight: 700; margin-top: 0; line-height: 1.2; }

Assuming you have an account and are logged in, point your curser on your username at the top right and in the drop down menu click My Videos. Once there look to the left of the page and you'll see a button that says NEW and point to it and you'll see a link pop up that says VIDEO UPLOAD which will bring you to the video upload page. help with assignment
