Background Video mode in Ver 5

Post by michling » Mon Jul 31, 2017 12:14 am

Maybe this is a dumb question, why is the new background video mode, for Layers and LayoutGrid limited to Youtube and Vimeo videos?

New features in the software are based on request of users. This was a frequently requested feature so that is why I decided to implement.
Adding support for other video formats would have been more work, because you will need to support multiple formats. Which makes it more complicated to use.

This is also a question in using Background Mode with Video.
I notice when a create a layer and use the Background mode using Video, the video works perfectly on my Mac running Mac OSX, but when opened on my IOS 11 devices, the video just shows as an image, and does not play.
Am I doing something wrong, or is the Background Mode - Video not compatible with IOS 11?
Thanks

Videos on iOS devices do not support auto play to save bandwidth and battery life.
However I have read somewhere that if you remove the audio from the video that it may work. Note that this is unrelated to the application.
