I have uploaded my video to youtube. The video contains a sound. I have then linked the youtube video to debut theme front page. If i choose the style for the video with the option of " Image with play button " the sound is there. If i set the style of the video to " Background Video " ( which is the style that i want ) the sound does not play. Can you let me know if there is an option to enable sound in Background Video mode?

That setting is on purpose. Nobody wants a background video autoplaying with sound. Don't do that to your visitors, it's rude.

Browsers simple does not autoplay videos that have sound, especially for mobile devices.

Debut actually does autoplay background videos, but it mutes them, rightly so.

I am looking for the same solution.  Hoping to add a little toggle button in the corner that will enable sound.   I am good with starting background video muted, but I want to give an option to enable sound if they wanted.  Thanks.

Looking for the same solution as egghead

 

I was able to get the sound working by changing the html code in the section sitefiles from mute to soundon but now I want to add in a sound toggle that gives the option to mute...I know I need to jQuery but not sure how to do it with Shopify. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks
