Twitter-bootstrap – Bootstrap 3 – Responsive mp4-video


I tried to find a good solution on the bootstrap site but I didn't get an answer to this yet. I think I can't be the only one struggling with this, but I couldn't find anything that helped me.

I'm trying to embed an mp4-video on my website. The problem is, that if I use an iframe-tag I can't use autoplay and loop.
Because of that I would like to solve it with a video tag (or something else that supports autoplay and loop). After that I tried to make my video responsive with an object-tag but this didn't work. Even though I let it in my code (to show you) which you can see below:

<div align="center">
   <object class="embed-responsive-item">
     <video autoplay loop >
       <source src="file.mp4" />

I hope anyone of you can help me fix this.

It is to my understanding that you want to embed a video on your site that:

  • Is responsive
  • Allows both autoplay and loop
  • Uses Bootstrap

This Demo Here does just that. You have to place another embed class outside of the object/embed/iframe tag as per the the instructions here - but you're also able to use a video tag instead of the object tag even though it's not specified.

<div align="center" class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9">
    <video autoplay loop class="embed-responsive-item">
        <source src="" type="video/mp4">
