Background video using embed code

Recommended Posts


The opening page of my site has background video using the standard squarespace method. It works perfectly on desktop.

Previously the background video seemed to worked fine on mobile too (iphone..chrome.. ios 13.4.1). But now the background video has stopped working on mobile. It's just a black screen. It's extremely frustrating.

If i embed video on the page manually, i can get it to autoplay on mobile (using background=1) . But it doesn't look right (it does not fill the screen).

Is there a way to match the squarespace background video look (ie always filling the screen, and zooming in to the centre of the video on mobile) using specific embed code?  

Or has anyone found a way to get squarespace background video to work on mobiles (i've seen plenty of non-squarespace sites that work fine)?

I'm really struggling with this!
If background video does not work on mobiles on squarespace ( i haven't seen any examples on the forum to suggest it does)  i don't really want viewers to just hit a 'fallback' image as the first thing they see. Is there therefore a way that mobile users can avoid the background video page entirely and jump to another page? So desktop viewers get to see the video background and mobile users jump straight to a gallery page or something more dynamic? I do not have the business package...
