Hi,

 

I'm trying to add a video to my home page but it won't auto play without me pressing the play button. How do I make it auto play? Thanks.

I have figured it out... for those of you that might run into this issue. Here's how I did it, and it will work with most themes.

 

You need to add section, custom HTML and use the code below

 

<p><video muted="muted" autoplay="autoplay" loop="loop" playsinline="" width="80%">
<source src="VIDEO URL">
</video></p>

 

If you don't want your video muted, use the code below

 

<p><video autoplay="autoplay" loop="loop" playsinline="" width="80%">
<source src="VIDEO URL">
</video></p>

 

Upload the video to shopify files and place the link in VIDEO URL above.
