Mute un mute button for background video?


#1

Hi all. Anybody have any experience getting a mute and un mute buttons to trigger the sound on a video baground?

IIRC Webflow post-processes background video uploads, reducing the quality and stripping away the audio to reduce filesize.

So even if you had custom code to toggle the audio, there won’t be any audio.

Hi samliew thanks for getting back to me.

I thought that may be the case looking at it.
I think my other option may be to creat a 100vh slider at the to and ad the video into this.

What do you think. I can adding the video url via cms and the custom widget.
