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.

    That would be great.

    Isn't it a bandwidth issue with mobile?

    Anyone know of a workaround for this?

    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.

    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?
