Autoplay Video on Page Load - How to

eric shared this question 2 years ago
Answered

Is there a way to have a video autoplay at page load? I've tried embedding both Vimeo and youtube videos, but even though I checked the autoplay option, the video requires the Play button to be pressed.


I'm viewing on a Nexus 5.


Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Eric,


You will need to insert the specific embedding Vimeo code. Check out this link for more information:

Hi Sonia,


Looks like autoplay is disabled on mobile:

Is there a solution out there for supporting autoplay on Mobile? To be clear, it doesn't have to be through Vimeo or Youtube. Any solution out there is fine with me.

Hi Eric,


you should investigate if there is any other video player that has an embedding code with an autoplay available.


Sorry for any inconvenience.

I tried autoplaying an embedded Youtube video. If you replace the ?req=0 with ?autoplay=1 then it will work in the JIM program as well as the simulation. But I still need to press it from the JIM mobile application.
