Unable to disable stipaudio on BG video transcode

Audio Works in Sandbox when export code and replace a href of BG VIDEO file

I must test mute script on a live webflow instance. (It works in sandbox)

I need to upload MP4 file and preserve audio. All mp4 uploaded to webflow automatically strips audio component on transcode. I am unable to disable audio stripping.

How to reproduce:

  1. Create BG Video element in a container
  2. Upload mp4 with audio under 8MB to BG Video element
  3. Observe playback

DOM script for mute / unmute cannot be tested because all videos are audio stripped automatically.

We have Wistia/Vimeo/Youtube but for this instance we simply need BG video component to play audio.

Hi @miekwave

Thanks for posting about this. It’s expected behavior at this point for the audio to be stripped from a background video component. In this case you could use the video element with a Wistia/Vimeo/Youtube link, or you can use an embed and create a custom bg video.

I hope this helps!
