Video Background Not Working on iPhone, etc.



New Member
Hi all,
Forgive me, I am new to Elementor / Wordpress, and not a great website designer. I was considering Squarespace but wanted to experiment with WP and I'm already having a couple issues with my build on the home page, as follows:

1. Using Astra Mountain Theme, dropped a YouTube video into the contact section background. Looks great on my Mac laptop, but defaults to still pic on iPhone 10. Do these video backgrounds normally work on iPhones? Should I use a widget instead for this background video?

2. Used SmartSlider 3 to create my header. Looks great on all devices, but the little slider side arrows < > disappear on my mobile in the editor and do not show when published. Anyone have a solution or for this? Thanks in advance.
