Browser Autoplay html5


I’m experimenting with short looping video, and getting different results with different browsers. Is there a foolproof method of forcing a browser to autoplay a video in RW?

I know it can be done, because I’ve visited sites using my reluctant browsers (Chrome and Opera) that do manage it…

Thank you for looking…


iOS (I guess overall Safari) for example only allows autoplay if the sound is muted.

Try the play stack from Doobox, it will mute the video as well.

You can’t and shouldn’t force any modern browser to auto play. Most all have user settings or plugins that allow the user to turn off the auto play of audio and videos.

iOS used to prevent all auto play (wish they still did) but now allows videos without audio to play.

Ever single browser I have installed on my Mac(everyone available) is set to not allow auto play of videos or audio. What’s funny is going to a site that relies on the auto play feature and doesn’t provide controls.

Ok, I’ll re-phrase…

Is there any fool-proof method that ensures the videos on my site abide by the default settings of the most common modern browsers.

Just to be clear, I’m talking about a few seconds of animated footage used as thumbnails.

Thanks, I’ll take a look!

Yes, I’ve seen this mentioned on a few threads… The stacks I’ve been using haven’t given me the option to do this. The MP4s I’m using have no audio, so it’s potentially a great solution.

No need for a stack:

That looks useful… Thank you.

My html5 video stack can audio play video. Set the volume to 0 and you are good to go.
