Hello, can somebody advise how we can autoplay and auto loop videos like the site I referenced? Seems by default you can only loop section background videos and not individual video blocks?

Thanks in advance!


Which element are you mentioning? Can you take some screenshots for it?

It looks like you figured out a way. Cool site by the way.

I go to Design, Custom CSS, Manage Custom Files, Upload (your video)

Copy that code

Go to your page, create an Embed or Code block and paste that code you just copied

You may have to add extra code to have it work on mobile devices not just your personal site

My problem I am still having is I can only upload a video file that is under 12mb, any bigger and it won't load.

This feature is now available in Video Blocks:
