Disable sound on background video


#1

Hello there!

I used a background video for my website. First video I uploaded was with sound, but whe i loaded it in webflow and published the site - there was no sound. And that was okay.
But when I decided to change background video, I uploaded anther one and after publishing i opened site and there was a video sound! I don't know how to disable this sound and more - some people don't hear it when open site, and some hear.

How to disable video background sound without editing media file?

My guess is the sound formt of the first video wasn't supported by the browsr, hence it not playing it.

HTML5 video allows you tu mute a video. But you can't add attributes to the Video Bg Widget of Webflow. So it's only for HTML5 bg videos made with custom code.

Attribute is "muted" and has to be plce in the video tag:

<video controls muted>
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>
