Webflow's latest website has auto Video play, But How?

The new Webflow website is amazing, but I was hoping Webflow would share their secrets with the community:slight_smile:
How did Webflow get the MP4 videos on the home page to play auto? I don’t think they are video background components, how is this woking?

It might not be a background video since the code appears to be different for both options in inspector tool

However, background videos will autoplay and you can size them accordingly.

Yeah I saw that in the developer tools, but whats great is that the Webflow video only starts playing when you sroll into view of it

Possibly a video converted to GIF?

Good idea, but it looks like they are using embed element in the DEV tools, must be some custom jquery plugin maybe. But I could be way off
