Background Video Autoplay Blocking in New Browsers 2018


#1

Hey Guys,

me and my clients really like the background video feature but unfortunately we have to detect,
that in the newest release of Safari on a Mac, the browser blocks the autoplay mode.
Result: Client’s not satisfied. I also read that Chrome will introduce this feature in January 2018.

So is this turn killing background videos? In future meetings what can I recommend the client if he wants a background video that autoplays? Telling him that we are now a step further in the future and have to think different? But then he will argue: many people like auto playing background videos…

Can I set browser specific things? Or do I always have to consider a gif?
What do you recommend and where is this going? Do we still need the background video component in the future in Webflow?

Thanks,
David
