Background video not playing on mobile

Hi all,

I had this working earlier today, but all of a sudden my background video isn’t working on mobile. All I see is the play button. See screenshot below. I tried on Safari and Chrome browsers on iOS. it also wasn’t working on my wife’s iPhone.

I see a couple others reporting this issue in the forum over the last year, but I didn’t see a clear solution from those posts.

Thanks so much for your help!

Hey there @kwshaw!

Welcome to the forums, and thanks for posting your question.

As you’ve discovered, this is a known issue especially on iOS when it comes to how it prevent background videos from playing.

There is a great related post that showcases a great workaround with some custom code if you haven’t checked it out yet.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

My best,
Riley
