WAIT: Background video does not autoplay in Chrome

I used an uploaded mp4 file as a background video but it does not autoplay while loading or reloading the website. When I click on the home link in the menu it starts playing. Does anyone know the cause or a fix for it?

I open your website and the video is played automatically.

Hi, thanks for your quick reaction!
It does not work in Google Chrome (at least not here on my Mac and PC).

I’ve tried it in MS Edge… Does not work… No clue why.

I fixed it by using and styling the video widget in stead of setting a background video. This is the working homepage which also auto plays in Chrome: https://ho.maarevenonline.nl/

And this is the old homepage with the background video: https://ho.maarevenonline.nl/home-old/

Just out of curiosity; if anyone knows why the autoplay does not work in Chrome when setting the video as a background, please let me know!

Hello @barthusz

I’ve tried to reproduce the issue on my local installation and for me it works (Chrome).

I suspect the issue is because you didn’t use the full path URL when setting the video link in the Background video control:

Could you please try using the full path?
