Where is the BG Audio?

Hi Guys ~ I’m trying to complete a design for a filmmaker and uploading BG videos, but am shocked to see the audio is NOT playing with the video.

Is there something I can do to have the AUDIO play with the file?



Hello @Micheal_Beaulieu,

If you want sound use the non-background video component or custom code. Webflow does not uploads the sound on BG videos.

Hey thx :slight_smile:

Hmmm… what code would I need to add to a video link to autoplay w. sound?

@Micheal_Beaulieu Im not too sure about that, try this link https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp you can test the autoplay on this link https://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_video_autoplay Please let me know if that helps.

Current versions of browsers will block autoplay by default if it has sound. Not sure there is a hacky way of enabling it.
