Hi Sumit @samm8158 –
Thanks for reporting the issue with videos and slider animation. I have opened up an issue on GitHub for the dev team to take a look. You can track progress here: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cbox-theme/issues/207
Meanwhile, please note that the slider animation stops if you hover over the slide, and starts again when you move the cursor away from the slide. But you are right – this is a little disconcerting to a user who isn’t aware and is trying to watch the video in its entirety.
In terms of your first issue, it is always best to choose slider images with the knowledge that the bottom third will be mostly obscured with the overlay. So if your image has important content at the bottom, you might want to do some image editing. (I think it is always best to edit the image first to get the size right, and not depend on the built-in scaling.) When you do this, make sure the slide will look good when the overlay is in place.
You can also fiddle around with the overlay height with CSS and limit your caption content to just a title, for example:
