    I’m wondering the same thing. I would like the video to not play in tablet and mobile devices, only in desktop. I thought I could just hide the video with CSS initially, but the fallback image appears as a background image of the div only if the video can’t play, not if you choose for it not to play. Thank you!

    +1 for a good solution to this.

    It’s a great plugin and works brilliantly ‘out-of-the-box’. In my testing though, the background video loads and plays on Chrome on my Android phone, but it shows the fallback image on my iPad.

    I would like to be able to show the video on tablets but hide it on phones, so personally I’d like to be able to load the videos according to screen width (though I know that’s getting more complicated than it used to be with high resolution devices etc)

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Sorry – just to chime in again, it looks like background video on Android Chrome is a recent thing: https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/17/chrome-android-background-web-video/ so I think that for the foreseeable future, Android devices are going to show the video, and Apple devices are going to show the fallback image?

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Hi everyone,

    Video Background is undergoing some changes to make mobile a lot better. As badlydrawnben pointed out, there have been some new revisions in Android that allow video backgrounds. Depending on how others follow suit, there could possibly be video backgrounds on mobile in the near future.
