The Celebration theme needs to have its YTPlayer js updated to the latest version. There are several features that we should be able to enable when it comes to playing videos as section backgrounds, including useOnMobile to allow videos to play on mobile devices. This is a common piece of content on several websites and I should be able to activate it on this theme as well.
I've read several tickets where users ask about video in mobile and the regular solution you provide is to set the background image as a fallback. This is unacceptable. Popunzi's script allows for useOnMobile. Please implement their updated script and push out an update to the Celebration theme. Let me know if you have any questions and I can elaborate.
Thanks for reaching out to us and thanks for the heads up!
We will make sure to update YTPlayer in next theme update.
Once you receive theme update notification please proceed and update the theme as explained in this article:
How to update installed theme? Will it change data?
If you can't afford to wait for the theme update, please note that you can update the file yourself by downloading jquery.mb.YTPlayer.min.js file from the github repository and then performing manual update (overwrite) within Celebration plugin.
Let us know if you need help with anything else.

A huge thank you from BoldThemes in advance!
Thanks for the quick response! I appreciate this level of customer service.
For some reason, when I update it manually by overwriting the jquery.mb.YTPlayer.min.js file, the dimensions of the video changes and it ends up being zoomed in. I'm guessing you guys will fix this in testing before pushing the update?
Could you please tell us if you're referring to the video on mobile devices? Could you send us some screenshot of the issue?
If I update the jquery.mb.YTPlayer.min.js file manually on my server, it seems to be zoomed in about 30-50% more when I use the updated YTPlayer.min.js file. Not sure if there's a parameter in your script that's telling it how much to scale up? Of course, this is in a "Section" in Rapid Composer. Screenshots are attached.
