Great little plugin which adds a Gutenberg video background block which is missing most other plugins. Responsive support too! An option for cropping the section of the video for mobile viewing would be great!

This plugin did what I needed in a very simple and intuitive way. I gave it 4 stars just because there is a minor setback / bug. When I refresh / update the editor, block is again filled with default content. I think this is because I am using this plugin just to display a full width video block so I don’t use title, paragraph and button.
