Removing controls from video header

I have a video header on a sydney pro site that I am building. I see a play/pause button on the header - is that something that can be removed?

Also - when I load the site on an Ipad, I see the video header playback controls…like a youtube video. I am trying to make it clean…just a looping video without any controls so it looks seamless. Thoughts please or any additional information that I can provide?

Hello @muzmeh,

Can you please provide a link to your website?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi,

I have the same problem in my site…

  1. I would like to remove the Youtube branding at the bottom
  2. I want the video to play automatically when the site loads in Mobile versions (Currently that is not happening)
  3. I want the video to play on loop both in mobile and desktop versions

Here is the link of my test site…

Thanks for your help in advance

Hello Arun,

1. It looks like you have already resolved this issue.

2 and 3. Since WordPress 4.7, video header functionality is part of WordPress itself:

Since those issues are not the theme issues, I kindly suggest you to use WordPress.org forums to find a solution.

Please feel free to create a new topic if you have any other questions.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hello Arun,

Please try to use the following CSS code in order to hide (not remove) that button.

You can add CSS code in Dashboard → Appearance → Customize → Additional CSS (WordPress 4.7 and up).

#wp-custom-header-video-button {
    display: none;
}

Kind Regards, Roman.

Perfect !

Thanks a ton !!!

Jus one more quick thing … Why does in Iphone Safari Browser the header video doesnt play automatically ? Also it opens up in a seperate player window

Thanks again for all your kind help
