Enable Background Video on Mobile Devices (Chrome & Safari)

Currently, Background Video is not supported for mobile devices (both landscape & portrait). Works just fine on desktop and iPad/Tablets.

    Yes, please! It's becoming a tedious to find workarounds for so many issues like this one.

    We are having the same problem.

    On our homepage @ Dark Matter Digital - the video is beautiful on desktop but then breaks the user experience on Mobile. Would love to see this feature added.

    Would love to see this feature added. I have a site with background videos as headers (wordpress site) and the theme I'm using supports video on mobile devices. And idea when this feature will be added?

    This would really help my project. I have an MP4 file which I've reduced down to 127kb and it looks great, but it won't centre properly on mobile. I have learned that I must use a gif, but even with significant effort I can not get the gif below 400kb and the quality of it is dreadful. I give this a hard and heavy vote.

    Anyone know of a workaround for this?

    That would be great.

    Isn't it a bandwidth issue with mobile?
