As I commented yesterday, YouTube has been practically unusable for banner videos for months, and I'd prefer it if Squarespace didn't promote or encourage the use of YouTube for hosting banner videos. That said, if you're experiencing issues with Background videos, please contact Squarespace Customer Care. You can reach out to them here.

Ah gotchya, thanks for the heads up. From the other thread it sounds like vimeo isn't working perfectly either? 

Pretty lame.

Wondering/will try hosting a short? 15 second video on my dropbox. Feel like this is so simple, everyone would do it so must not work ?
