Hey everyone,

I'm trying to integrate a video in a prototype, and the video works as expected in the preview window, but it doesn't play in the mirror app on mobile for iOS. Anyone know what's going on?

How big is the file size? Once I optimised that it worked much better for me.

Video file is 7.9 mb web optimized in Handbrake

Framer Mirror seems very slow downloading that video file. It does not buffer it, I think. You can tell by downloading the project to your phone, it takes aaaaaages.

When I view the same prototype in Safari on iOS, the video runs fine, but then I have Safari chrome :(

I made a video slider thingy once, maybe the code helps you: https://framer.cloud/ACePt

I compressed the video even more down to 5 mb and now it works in mirror. Even though Framer has a 10 mb limit, it appears that limit for smooth working video is half that.

I had the same issue recently, ended up using a trick - forced video to autoplay and immediately pause it(after split second). This way mirror buffed the video faster. Thought,framer team, it would be great to have somee sort of preloader that works with video layers!
