Having trouble adding text to video background.

hey guys how do i have a video as a background for a div? i want to put text over this video but plasmic wont let me put it over it, only under and next to it if you get what I mean

Hey Lucas! Try setting the parent container to “Free” layout. You should then be able to position the text over the video.

Using absolute positioning like Dave mentioned is one good approach

Another thing you can do is to use a one column grid, and insert both the video and the content as children of the grid, and set both of them to the same position in the grid
