    Hi Jason,

    I’ve built a site with a video background on the front page. Everything works fine except on an ipad (with retina display) if you use landscape mode. Any ideas why?

    Hello Erik,

    Because of how iOS plays video, a background video isn’t possible in the way we can utilize on desktop. The theme does take this into account and makes sure the fallback image displays as the browser is scaled down to smaller devices. However, since we’re only doing this based on the viewport, we’re seeing the side effect of larger mobile devices, in the desktop range, not displaying the fallback properly.

    This is a similar issue to this, and will have it fixed in the next update by making sure the fallback image displays.

    Here’s a quick CSS fix for you, if you want:

    .mobile .tb-bg-video {
        display: none;

    Yep, it’s hard work trying to be good looking on all platforms and screens. Thank you for the quick fix. Works really well. Cheers!
