Have just puchased the background video app and am trying to add a video to a page.

Without the video, the test page looks like this and the intention is to add the video to the container with class="row headerLayer"

When I do that, the page looks like this

Your advice how to get the video to display within that container without it breaking the rest of the css would be appreciated.

Am running DW 2015.3 7888 on Windows 10

It's because of your page structure.
Please move the video player tags inside the row ...

<div id="bgvideo1" is="dmx-background-video" src="images/misc/26859013-preview.mp4">

Put the video player div inside this ROW you are trying to put the video into. I pasted which tag in my last post.

i had tried that already but have done it again so you can see

it just breaks the css in a different way.

I noticed that if I removed 'overflow:hidden' (from
<div style="position: absolute; width: 100%; height: 100%;  overflow: hidden; ">

) in webmaster tools, then the video becomes visible but then other css becomes broken.

There is something strange in your page layout/css which is causing this.
Please remove the video player tags from your page and add the video attributes to your row headerLayer to test if it works fine:

<div class="row headerLayer" id="bgvideo1" is="dmx-background-video" src="images/misc/26859013-preview.mp4">
