Background video don't play on mobile devices 2020

Hi,

I’ve added a background video thru the built in component (no audio track) but on mobile it doesn’t play.
I’m aware this is a known problem when you have an audio track, but in this case it’s been removed?

Hi
I think background video never play on mobile.

As long as the audio track is muted it should work on mobile.

Try this thread, hope it helps :slight_smile:

Webflow already implemented a fix in 2017 for their background video component:

So it should be working, can anyone from the webflow team jump in here please?

For a background video to work on mobile devices you need the html attributes “muted” and “playsinline”, but the background video component already has those attributes built in.
