Video not playing from revslider


I made some changes to text and replaced the video in one of my rev sliders that has worked fine up til now. Tried rebuilding, still not working.

Now I can’t get the video to play. Replaced all the assets and read support threads related to the problem for others. I still can’t seem to get any new youtube video to play after investigating problems and solutions.

Here’s the page example

As a test, I uploaded youtube hero slider and only placed video and it didn’t play. Just in case of gremlins, I even exported the video again and re-uploaded to youtube and it doesn’t play :–0

Also, can I accomplish the same effect as the rev slider with video in the background of a section using cornerstone as I have in this example using elementor?

I have had trouble getting a youtube video to play in the section, row, or column backgrounds

Just reaching out for options to resolve, Thanks

Hi @vxrworks,

Thank you for writing in, one of your sections has the Youtube video background playing. Would you mind to clarify the issue? Is there a chance that you’re using a touch screen device? Because the background-video is intentionally disabled on mobile for performance purpose.

Regarding the Revolution Slider video, please review the setup here.

Thank you, let me check the set up steps you provided to ensure I created the slider correctly.

Also, I changed the header in question to a still slider so I need to change it back to the one that has a youtube video not playing, sorry for that, my bad I forgot to change it back.

In addition, the video shown in the screenshot is working, but it is self-hosted, which we are not set up to take too much advantage of based on server limitations, etc.

I have reactivated the slider that employs the youtube video using the video’s youtube ID

P.S. I will attach login in secure note after I investigate the suggestion


Hi @vxrworks,

I have checked the markup of that Section and I see Youtube video

Please provide us login credentials in a secure note, so we can take a look at the slider and section configuration.
