Background video on mobile devices Merged

There are many examples on the internet with a working video background on android and ios devices:

It's time to extend the video background feature to mobile devices. This is very important and urgent upgrade!

    Why isn't anybody voting for this??

    Would be really helpful since I'm trying to build my new Portfolio website on Webflow. Since most of my work is animated it should to work on mobile too. The Videos should behave just like an image (autoplay, no controls) so that they also work on a responsive layout without being cropped. GIFs not possible since the videos are too long (10 to 30 seconds each).

    Here’s a example of a webbage with video content that is responsive and also works on mobile:

    It looks like this website was build in Squarespace, so it clearly works… Can’t you do this too?

    If I can't find a way to make this work I will have to switch to another application since my portfolio depends on it :(
