Video background buggy

Featured Lock Resolved Bug
Some issues with video as background using "Enable Youtube/Vimeo Video in the Background"

The biggest: it does not work on mobile at all. It just shows a static image with the youtube red play button, but doesn't function when clicked.

On Desktop plays automatically but does not loop even with "Play Video in Loop" selected.

There are no controllers so you can't pause or enlarge or open in youtube or play sound.

If using the mp4 option rather than youtube, this works on desktop but on mobile either doesn't load, or loads but fails to resize at all.

If I can at least use the youtube version but have it work do something on mobile that would be good.

Hi there,

The video background will work after the touch. Without touch, the video background won't play.

The touch? You mean pressing the red play button? Yep I'm pressing it many times, nothing happens.
