Videos will not autoplay on Android / iOS. The restriction is implemented at the operating system level to protect device owners from having their download allowance consumed by content they may not be interested in.

A poster image can be defined for videos that will be used as a preloading screen and also as a static fallback image on Android and iOS.

There are ways around this, using scripting, but I'd recommend using the static image fallback.

Thank you for your explanation--very helpful. You mention "autoplay"-- the ideal would be to have the option to play the video on mobile. So are you saying that I can create a poster image with the video arrow, that would then link to the video. Can I do this in SquareSpace? Right now I have a "Mobile fallback" image in place on the home page. I don't see the option to link that to a video.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.@silvabokis
