Background videos to take advantage of inlne autoplay on mobile (iOS10.x+)

The playsinline attribute ill start to be more and more supported. It's great to have mp4 streaming on background instead of using gif.


On iPhone, <video playsinline> elements will now be allowed to play inline, and will not automatically enter fullscreen mode when playback begins.
<video> elements without playsinline attributes will continue to require fullscreen mode for playback on iPhone.
When exiting fullscreen with a pinch gesture, <video> elements without playsinline will continue to play inline.

    I wonder why video background is still not available on iPhone by using Webflow’s element.

    It’s been available long ago by using “playsinline” attribute.

    I believe this option can be quickly available by simply allowing us to select as option.
    [ x ] add playsinline attribute
    [ x ] add muted attribute

    Thanks !
