Autoplay on local MP4 not working was created by Nathan
Hi there,

I've got a locally hosted MP4 file where I'm trying to have it autoplay with:
{mp4}introduction/introduction|||1{/mp4}

So not modifying height or width which is set in the plugin config to 100% / auto.

The video doesn't autoplay and when I have the extra parameters in also doesn't generate a poster image, but the standard plugin code does... which you can see here... website isn't live - www.lucyloumothernurture.com/members

Any ideas why this isn't working?

Thanks

Nathan

Just to add to this... I tested turning on AutoPlay globally and they don't play either.

All that had the effect of doing was to disable the poster on the standard plugin code.

Ok maybe this is expected behaviour but it's odd... just discovered by accident that if I navigate away from the page and then go back to it, the video auto plays as it should.

However, if I just hit Refresh in the browser to reload the page... it doesn't autoplay... is that how it's meant to work?

Just to close this out myself... yes that's the expected behaviour after testing a few other methods... and in this case the video had a long fadein from black so hence no poster image.

Maybe you have a corrupted file, didn't you check it?
