    autoplay feature - Background Video ?!

    HI, I'm using the GoDaddy business plus package. It gives me the option to link or embed a video from Youtube or Vimeo but it wont let me display a background video that's on auto play and auto loop. Does anyone have any idea to help with that that?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    We currently do not support autoplay feature in our video section. For the header background video, if you select one of our stock videos, it should be defaulted as autoplay.

    Hi @GGHTx  Thanks for the suggestion. Right now autoplay is not available, but I'll add this as an improvement ticket. It's usually not advised to have it autoplay with sound, so we'd look into having it play on mute until sound is turned on. Also, autoplay is often disabled on mobile for performance reasons. Thanks,

    Christine

    this is relevant to my interests as well. Thanks!

    Hi

    I thought it is possible to embed autoplay videos from vimeo? I have a plus account on vimeo.

     

    I have read that auto mute is needed for Chrome to allow autoplay.

    I have tried to autoplay a video in Chrome, IE11 and Edge - none are working.

     

    This is the code I have to run a Telsa 3 public video...

     

    <div style="padding:56.25% 0 0 0;position:relative;"><iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/161225080?autoplay=1&loop=1&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0&background=1" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen></iframe></div><script src="https://player.vimeo.com/api/player.js"></script>

     

    Is there a test video available from godaddy that will allow me to test autoplay is working, and its not some browser/security/plugin issue...

     

    Thank you

    Is there a way to get the YouTube Videos to autoplay?  That might be a workaround until they figure out the background videos.

    Is there an update on this? I too am trying to auto play a Vimeo video and loop it. I put in the correct code and it still is not auto playing. Thanks.

    Hi @Leahnicole101,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    You can check out this article for more information on Vimeo controls. There is a link within that will take you to the Vimeo help area to setup your preferences as well.

    I want to use my own video for the header background video. How does one do this? There doesn't appear to be an option to upload my own video. Do I have to use the custom HTML section? If so, does that mean I have to store the video on another URL. I understand this web builder is for beginners, but there should be a simple way to upload your own videos for the header.

    Hey @MeanDean

     

    I can confirm from earlier discussions on other threads concerning this same request, that we're looking into options on how to make video headers more customizable but don't have a date for when something like that will be implemented. We appreciate the feedback, but in the meantime, you can only select from the stock videos currently available!
