Videos Autoplay Restrictions

Autoplay Restrictions

If the autoplay parameter is present, our player will attempt to automatically begin playback. However, please note that some browsers specifically block autoplay. In these cases, your video will revert back to the original thumbnail and controls, requiring viewers to select play to start playback.

Autoplay is currently restricted in the following environments:

Safari version 11+ (Desktop)

Documentation: https://webkit.org/blog/7734/auto-play-policy-changes-for-macos/

Policy: Autoplaying videos must be muted. Viewers can choose to block or allow unmuted autoplay for specific domains on their setup (see here)

Chrome version 66+ (Desktop/Mobile)

Documentation: https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2017/09/autoplay-policy-changes
Policy: Autoplaying videos must be muted. Videos that are frequently visited by the viewer are permitted to autoplay with sound (based on Google’s scoring system)

iOS (Safari, other mobile browsers, apps)

Documentation: https://webkit.org/blog/6784/new-video-policies-for-ios/
Policy: Autoplaying videos must be muted.

Firefox 66+ (Desktop/Mobile)

Documentation: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay
Policy: Firefox now blocks videos with sound from playing automatically. This change is being gradually rolled out to users in Quantum version 66. Viewers can choose to block or allow unmuted autoplay for specific domains on their setup
