Code Block Videos Not Working all of a sudden

Recommended Posts


I'm having an issue where two video are no longer showing up on a site for a client. I wasn't the original designer, I just help with small changes and marketing now so this way of using videos to autoplay with a code block is not something I am familiar with. Before I reached out to the designer I wondered if anyone here knew what was happening  or I was just missing something obvious. 

This page has a video in the header on the right hand side that is now not visible or playing. 


Thank you!

I don't know why it isn't working (I haven't looked into your page yet) but have you tried using a Video Block instead of a Code Block?

@paul2009 thank you!  It was my original design and build but I've now taken over but I didn't quite understand the intent behind how it was coded.

Given Squarespace's new design features they just rolled out for video with auto-play, limited control etc. I did think of doing that. However, I think this might have been set up to work my like a Gif to completely eliminate the option for users to pause it. I saw in the main thread about video updates the discussion about accessibility and how removing any controls can affect that, which I found interesting. 

Thank you for taking the time to respond! I spoke to the original designer and they're looking at it or I might just replace them with the Video blocks instead given the new features and the insight into accessibility.
