My video does not work on mobileBrowser Info Environment
I am building a site, I placed a video on the background, but my video is not showing on the homepage on mobiles, is there a preferred format, right now I am using .MP4, works great on desktop but not on mobiles. suggestions?
Are you viewing it on IOS? Apple is very strict with autoplaying videos on IOS and currently there is no way to autoplay it. That's is why you wont see the video after loading the page unless you click the play button. I've added a button where users can click to play the video background on mobile.
Hopefully Apple will change how video on IOS behave on their next update. Anyway, is there anything else I can help you with?
What video format are you using? I have been checking regularly for webkit/safari news for workarounds on Apple's very strict video playback issue.
I just tested it on an Iphone6 with ios version 9.3 and can verify the problem. I think the latest mobile safari has removed the video background entirely and settled to do it on a player. I will be releasing a newer version of this theme with a still image fallback (cutom attribute) for ios. I hope you are alright with this compromise. Give me a day or two to put it together.
I do apologise for this inconvenience.
By the way, I really like the video you are using.
I have released version 1.3.3 which has the IOS fallback custom attribute. You can add an image to that attribute and it will be used as a fallback for IOS devices.
To update your theme kindly go to add functionality on the dashboard and click update on the button next to the theme. There might be some sql errors when you upgrade (i removed some ugly codes which i shouldnt have) but please ignore.
Let me know how it goes.
That worked perfect
This same client of mine wants me to do 2 more sites with this same theme, so i'm going to purchase them, but they are asking me why it has ©C5BOX Framework at the bottom. They want their name as the copyright for the images and content, and since they are paying for it, can I take that off, and if so, what source file is it in?
The copyright is just a content block. You can put your site on edit mode, click it, and delete. It is somewhat tricky to click though, because of other areas surrounding it.
Are you using webm format? I have read issues with safari not playing nice with non-standard apple formats. Try converting the video to mp4.
I hope this helps.
