Hey guys, 

i'm doing a full rebuild of my website in 7.1 fluid engine as my current site is 7.0 and the time has come ! 

I've added a custom code block on the homepage of the website with some scrolling text but for some reason it doesn't show on mobile- any reasoning for this? the file is video (webm) that is just on a muted loop. 

Im writing bits and pieces of my own CSS and html but i'm definitely a beginner here so any guidance would be helpful on why that code/file may not showing on mobile would be great.

Yep - the scrolling text behind the photo. 

When i load the page on my iphone it doesn't show it. When looking in developer mode in mobile views on my laptop it'll show it but not on a physical phone. 

Add this to Design > Custom CSS

/* Scrolling text */
#siteWrapper .fe-block-yui_3_17_2_1_1683164709051_4280 {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 99999;

I've added a [WebM video using a] custom code block...but for some reason...When i load the page on my iphone it doesn't show it.

iOS doesn't have full support for the WebM video format yet. To play the video on your iPhone, you'll need to convert it to a more widely supported format, such as H.264.
