Topic: Video background intro

allancmello pro asked 2 years ago

Expected:"Video background intro" runs on all browsers.

Problem: Video background intro works on Edge and Firefox browsers, but it doesn't work on Chrome. Is there a specific procedure for the video to play in Chrome?

Screens: Attached images running on Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

Sample of MDB:

Code file countdown.component.html:

<div style="height: 100vh">
<!-- Main navigation -->
  <!-- Full Page Intro -->
  <div id="intro-section" class="view">

    <video class="video-intro" style="height:900px" poster="" playsinline autoplay muted loop>
      <source src="" type="video/mp4">
    <!-- Mask & flexbox options-->
    <div class="mask rgba-gradient d-flex justify-content-center align-items-center">
      <!-- Content -->
      <div class="container px-md-3 px-sm-0">
        <!--Grid row-->
        <div class="row wow fadeIn">
          <!--Grid column-->

@allancmello Please edit your post and provide an example code on which we will be able to reproduce this problem.

allancmello pro commented 2 years ago

Hi Arkadiusz, code published. Copied from the same MDB example Video background intro.

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff commented 2 years ago

@allancmello Thank you for the code. You have unclosed div tag: <div style="height: 100vh">, when I removed it, the video worked correctly even in chrome (tested on v91.0.4472.77).

Please make sure that you copied CSS code from example in documentation to global styles in styles.scss file.

allancmello pro commented 2 years ago

Hi Arkadiusz, The div tag: it just wasn't copied together in the code sent. If the closing of the tag was missing, it would give an error in the execution of the site. Moved css code from countdown.component.scss to style.scss. And the problem remains, the video is not only displayed in Chrome. I'm using scss and not css. I don't know if it makes any difference.

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff answered 2 years ago

It looks like muted attribute is not working correctly and chrome automatically disables autoplay if this attribute is not set. Please try to change muted to onloadedmetadata and autoplay to oncanplay like in following example:

    <source src="" type="video/mp4" />
