    Hi, I want to use the media player to play continuously a short video, like this site

    So the video is in the background and I can place other Telrik components in front of it. Does the MediaPlayer is suited for this?

    You can use something like the following:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <head runat="server">
            .main-wrapper {
                border: 3px solid green;
                position: relative;
            .mp-wrapper {
                position: absolute;
                top: 0;
                left: 0;
                z-index: 100;
                display: inline-block;
                border: 3px solid red;
            .my-content {
                position: absolute;
                top: 0;
                left: 0;
                z-index: 1000;
                display: inline-block;
                border: 3px solid blue;
                width: 1200px;
                height: 900px;
                color: white;
                text-align: center;
                font-size: 20px;
            .my-content a {
                display: inline-block;
                padding: 15px 20px;
                background-color: #00bcd4;
                border: 1px solid aqua;
                margin: 20px 10px 10px 10px;
                border-radius: 10px;
                color: white;
                font-size: 20px;
                text-decoration: none;
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <asp:ScriptManager runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
            <div class="main-wrapper">
                <div class="mp-wrapper">
                    <telerik:RadMediaPlayer RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadMediaPlayer1" runat="server"
                        Height="1000px" Width="1200px" Source="">
                            <telerik:MediaPlayerVideoFile Title="Icenium" Poster="icenium.png">
                                    <telerik:MediaPlayerSource Path="" />
                <div class="my-content">
                    <h4 style="font-size: 60px;">Everything you need to succeed in games and VR/AR</h4>

    Note that the MediaPlayer and the content are absolutely positioned and using z-index the content is placed over the MediaPlayer. That way it is not possible to use the pause/play button that is inside the player, but I just set a lower height of the content compared to the player so it is possible to use the buttons on the bottom.

    Of course, you can decide to configure the player in a different way. With that example I am just showing how to put content over the video.
