How to remove grey outline / overlay on looping video code block (only shows on mobile)

Recommended Posts


Hi there, I found the following code in a youtube tutorial for autoplaying and looping video in squarespace. It shows up fine on desktop, but on mobile the video has a grey outline / boundary or a grey overlay (differs on Android / iOS). 

This is the code I'm using as a code block (video URL removed for now - it's the URL generated when you upload to 'manage custom files')

<video autoplay=
autoplay" loop="true" width="100%">
  <source src="VIDEO LINK GOES HERE
" type="video/mp4"/>

Any ideas how to fix this on mobile? Note - I don't code so please make any technical instructions simple 🙂
