Template HTML Video Playback on Mobile Devices


#1

Thinking of buying this template from your site however the video background does not play on mobile devices. Is this an error on the designers part or a webflow bug/issue. I have seen a few other design help questions in January 16 and June 16 with no reply. Seems like something that should work on a premium purchase template? Please advise

Background videos do not autoplay on mobile devices due to mobile device constraints.

However, one of our community members found a custom code work around here: https://forum.webflow.com/t/html5-video-autoplay-now-working-on-mobile/40584/2?u=waldo

If you have any trouble with the above integration, can you please make a post on the Webflow Help pages under the Code Help category with as much information as possible (read-only link, screen shots and a description).

Another option is to add a background image that will display on mobile instead of the bg video.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Is it a proprietary value because i don't see it on https://dev.w3.org/html5/html-author/ ?
I can only see on webkit for iphone https://webkit.org/blog/6784/new-video-policies-for-ios/

Hi @lionel, the support for iOS background video was updated, and that is what the custom code workaround shows, is how to enable that support using a custom embed.

The ability to do this natively in Webflow has not yet been updated.
