I use Section pro with a video background, but the video is not playing in Safari. The video is hosted on the server. Via the direct link to the video I get a crossed out play button. In Firefox is playing fine.
In the Section Pro stack I checked the allow play on touch devices, but is also doesn’t play on iPad or iPhone. The video is in mp4 format.
Screenshot of the settings are attached.
Link to the page is: Test anchor url
Direct link to the video: https://www.3xfilm.nl/resources/video/1920-860-waar-vind-je-ze-nog.mp4
Wow, thanks, this isolates the problem perfectly. I will call my hosting company if they have any clue as to what can block the playback of the video on my server.
I also read something about cloudflare buffering, interfering with video playback on apple devices. But I didn’t see a solution for that.
Yes of course! I used it purely for testing purposes. Uploaded the video to another domain I own and now the video plays fine on all platforms. Thank you for all your help, highly appreciated! So I will remove the testpage after the weekend also.
If I can resolve it with my host I can use my original link, if not playing the video’s from another domain is a nice workaround.
Is it possible to link to a vimeo video as a background video? I tried it also as a work around but couldn’t get it to play. Video was set to public and publish anywhere. Link to the video is: https://vimeo.com/616947543
Thank you, we do have Vimeo plus, but sadly this doesn’t do the trick for me. I found a couple of websites that have autoplay background video’s that work in Safari and are hosted on Vimeo. So it should be possible. For example: https://www.remistrikkers.com
In the there is also a script with a Vimeo API. Maybe the plugin somehow uses this script? Also this is a Wordpress website. Different platform, different tricks In the meanwhile it works on my website now on https://www.3xfilm.nl/ with the video being hosted on another domain I own.
