Header video for desktop view and different header image for mobile view


As we know that Header Video is not working on mobile view (Astrid theme). Can I use a header video for desktop view and a different header image for mobile view? At the same time?

Please advice.


Hello Sadab,

I believe it only happens on iOS devices which disallow auto-played video due to bandwidth consideration. Please refer to this post:

To alter it with an image of your choice, you could use this CSS code:

    @media only screen and (max-device-width: 1024px) {

      .wp-custom-header {
        background-image: url('https://yoursite.com/path/to/image.jpg');
        background-size: cover;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
        background-position: center center;

      .wp-custom-header > *{
        opacity: 0;


Add it to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS from dashboard.
