Hi, I have recently stumbled upon a problem, after client reported that BG video is not working. So I did my best to check, struggled for a while till i noticed googles Video Autoplay policy taking effect in April 2018.
So the problem.
- BG video not autoplaying ( even if video doesn’t have sound ). Not sure if the HTML5 tag
<Video muted >helps. // Will try later
- Safari / Firefox / Edge works as intended.
Really not the solution
- So in order to play video i have to go to chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy and change default to no user gesture. But this is not a solution.
So i was wondering is there a workaround for this ?
Sorted : Had to add mute=1 to iframe.
Thanks in advance.
