Auto Play Video & Custom controls

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Been trying to work out why my videos no longer auto play on safari.


Embed code added:

  <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/571612294?autoplay=1&loop=1&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0&autopause=0&muted=1" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Tweaked on Vimeo - Ideally I would like minimal interference playback controls on overview page, simply tiles of moving and stills. I'd love the expand out to new window to play with sound/controls. No option to set this up in Vimeo but any code ideas around  this in Squarespace?

1. Vimeo set-up
2. Load Safari
3. Load Chrome

Any ideas/help appreciated.

There are a number of reasons why videos may not autoplay (for example power save mode is on or low data rates are available) however your videos are autoplaying for me in Safari.
