Background video isn't working on published site due to Chrome 66 update

Here it is showing that it works

Thank’s for the replies:

It works in preview mode ( Like the video posted ) when you click the eye icon. It does not work on the published site.

Further to making my post, I have found that it plays in IE and Firefox but not Chrome, I have tried many things but nothing seems to work.

Thanks,

Niall

Idk I am not able to look at the published site, but if it makes any difference I did do preview mode on Chrome.

Webflow are looking at it Background video isn't working on published site due to Chrome 66 update

Ok - this is very strange but after HammerOz told me it was due to the Chrome update, I did turn off the Autoplay on the background video and then turned it back on again. Somehow it fixed this issue. So weird…

Thanks for all the replies. It’s working now. Webflow have fixed it.

One more example: https://www.atarilife.com/
The background video doesn’t work in 66… version of Chrome both on Windows and on Mac.

I have websites where there’s a background Youtube video that do work in this new Chrome.
Follow the tutorial attached.

But still I wait for Webflow’s resolution on this, because Youtube is blocked in China and we can’t use this Youtube solution for some websites.

@cyberdave you guys fix this? My bg vid is working on chrome again

Hi @HammerOz, thanks, yes, the awesome Webflow dev team has pushed out an update to add a muted tag to the background videos automatically. Let me know if there is any new behavior with that which is unexpected.

As a side note, I would recommend to republish the site project if the bg video does not autoplay right away.
