    Thanks Matteo. That fixed it. I uploaded the latest version and it now no longer autoplays in Chrome and Safari when autoplay is turned off.

    I love the plugin but I am having one serious problem.

    In Chrome and Safari even though I have set the video to NOT auto play it WILL auto play.

    Any ideas how to stop this from happening?

    Click the link above and refresh the page several times. you will see that it auto plays. If you look at the source code you will be able to see that I have set the plugin to NOT auto play.

    Great addon! Is here any chance to set up video background for each site on my web, or is this add working just on homepage?

    Thank you!

    Great work and development on this. One curiosity is, can the WP plugin be written in with an option to have a background image be shown if its a mobile device? Somehow missed that as far as the development of this is concerned. Or the default image of the WP installation becomes the background if one is chosen?
