Video header mobile playback

Recommended Posts

Dear Members and SS Team,

Over the years I have seen many posts from people that are asking how they can integrate/embed a video (in the header block) that autoplays on mobile.
Nowadays, over 50% are mobile devices. 

Now I can integrate video's with autoplay that work well on mobile (on a page).
However, I can't embed a video (from YouTube/vimeo) in a header section that will autoplay on mobile.
On desktop it works like a charm (working with the latest SS template).

I'm wondering if the SS already answered the community?
So again, I'm already using the autoplay work around for autoplay on a page (which autoplays on mobile).
But to integrate video as a header that will autoplay on mobile.

Yes, I know it is system based, however I 'can' integrate auto playing video on mobile if its on the page section.
Hope you guys can help out (including the Squarespace team) ..

This is a great question, and I'm surprised there hasn't been any answer yet. I would very much like for our site's banner embedded video to play on mobile devices, as we have 20% more visits through mobiles than desktops!

Can we get some kind of response please SS team?
