No audio played with background video in Safari

Hello everyone.

I’ve added a background video to my page, in google Chrome sound is playing, but in Safari there is no sound. Is it a matter of codec or what’s the workaround? Thanks

…added after…There is also an additional bug with button appearing in Safari - the opacity transition is not working properly within 7 seconds, it appears too fast, whereas in Chrome it’s fine again


Here is the Website

The answer might be in here:

I’ve got no safari browser at this device, but a couple of years ago I had a similar problem with sound clips. It had to do with Safari not autoplaying the clip, you might want to check that out. Set “autoplay” to true.

There’s more info here:

Thanks, I’d understand what to change in case if site will be finished, but while I still want to edit it in the webflow what code should I add to the site?

Did you figure this out? having the same problem

Hi. Apparently this is a bug. I’ve just placed my original mp4 file instead of webflow’s transcoded one and it works :slight_smile:

But I’m using an external hosting. Webflow should really fix it
