I have seen a video on a website without a background and it starts by
( /) I find it very interesting to use the technique
for a website of mine, but I don't know how they have created it. Any ideas?

The type of video used is flv/swf. I was able to grab the flv of the
lady in the video and it is the lady on what appears to be a pure
black background. I would guess that they are using something to make
the black background color transparent, much as one can do with a gif.
Keeping the placement of the video always at the same position when
you scroll down the page seems to be done with javascript. However
some of the code on the page is written in server side php, so I can
not be sure what they are doing because the php can not be viewed on a
browser. Another interesting thing is that if you go back to the page
a second time, the video does not appear. However if you clear your
cookies, the video will appear when you return again. This likely was
done to keep from annoying people so much once they have heard the
message from the lady in the video one time. .
