Make video auto play on mobile - Narrative

Hello everyone,

I'm using the Narrative theme.

At the top of the site, there is a video that plays automatically on desktop.
For mobile, you have to add an image, in place of the video.

Is there any way I can have the video auto play on mobile, and not have to use a photo?

Thank you in advance!

As far as I am aware videos can not be autoplayed on mobile anymore, I could be wrong though. Usually the best option/alternative for this case is using a .GIF instead, but I wouldn't really recommend it since it will slow down your website and, in terms of good UX (which translates to "making sales"), speed is more worthwhile than forcing the customer to watch a video.

If you find a website using autoplayed videos on mobile please share it so I can take a look.

Kind regards,
Diego
