Narrative theme: forcing video play (within slideshow) on mobile?

Hi all

 

Just signed up to Shopfiy 2 days ago and i'm building my first store but have hit a snag - a video demonstrating my product is quite critical. 

 

Narrative theme allows you to include a Youtube video, but this defaults to an image on mobile. From my reading it seems this is because autoplay is not supported on some devices.

 

I've been prodding around the code/CSS but can't find how to "force" the video to appear on mobile also. Worst case i'd prefer the video played on some devices, and only then defaulted to the image (thumbnail from YT?) if it wasn't supported.

 

Has anyone solved this? I've seen other themes that support autoplay video on mobile (at least my Pixel 4)... 

 

Thanks

No :( I've made an animated gif out of my video instead and used that. But
it looks terrible.
