Background Video not playing anymore on mobile

Lately the background video is not working anymore on mobile. The custom code doesn’t work as it used to be.

Any other workaround?

Hi @creatspot,
Did you try remove the custom code you used to use ?
I don’t think you need custom code for the Webflow native background video to autoplay on mobile nowadays, as long as your video is muted.

Hi @anthonysalamin, thanks for your message. I have removed all custom code related to the video but it is still not playing on mobile. Webflow compresses the video anyways so it can’t be the file format can it?

What would be the link to your website ?

the live links are:


Two different videos and none of them playing on mobile.

Playing all good on my smartphone as far as I can tell. I think your issue might be local, not from Webflow.

Hi Anthony, indeed – out of nowhere it also plays on my phone. Maybe the webflow stuff made a fix?
Let’s hope it stays that way :slight_smile:
