Autoplay

Hey, 

 

I'am trying to put autoplay video on my homepage, and it just doesn't seem to work. I use this code in custom liquid section

  1. <style>
  2.  
  3. video {
  4.  
  5. display: block;
  6. margin: 0 auto;
  7. width: 100%;
  8. height: 50%;
  9.  
  10. }
  11.  
  12. </style>
  13.  
  14.  
  15. <video autoplay loop playsinline muted>
  16. <source src="VIDEO URL HERE">
  17. </video>

But it doesn't work for me, video plays fine, but he is not  autoplay one, you need to press the button and then he plays just on loop. I tried to update my theme from dawn 5.0.0 to dawn 13.0.1 but version of the theme wasn't the issue. I really could use some help, thank you!!

@GabijaZ Try below code in your output area and see it is working or not if working then replace the source url with your video url.

 

<video width="500" controls=0 autoplay playsinline muted loop>
  <source src="http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/gtv-videos-bucket/sample/BigBuckBunny.mp4" type="video/mp4">
</video>

You are pasting code in the liquid section I suggest to put the code in html section block.

Weird thing, I came back to this project after few days brake and out of nowhere it started working with no additional codes:DDD I guess nothing was wrong, somehow it just needed time to start working
