Mobile video slideshow play button

Hi, 

I am using the "video slide" in the "slideshow section" (Narrative theme). The video auto-plays on the desktop view and it does not play on the mobile view. I found in the forms that mobile prevents auto-play videos for data-use reasons. I found a solution in the forms: 

"If you'd like to display this video for your mobile users as well, there is an option that you can use, however!  In your theme customization screen, click on that video slide and change the option in the 'Style' menu to 'Background video with play button. Once selected, a play button will display beneath your text, and the video will automatically play on desktop.  On mobile, a static image will appear, but will also include the play button if your customer chooses to watch the video!

This video setup would work for me, the problem is there is no "style" menu under video slide. Is there anything I can add to the code to make this work?

Thank you for the help!

Hi, I've the same problem.

 

I want a looping video background autplayed in the slideshow for narrative theme.

I tried to create one manually by uploading a video and placed it in a "custom html" but i can't place it above the slideshow in the narrative theme so that option was no success.

 

So, is there anyone out there that has a solution on the video slideshow for mobile since it's almost 80-90% today that uses mobile first?

 

Thanks! Br, Jesper
