Featured product video to autoplay instead of thumbnail

helpcomp

On my Featured Product it displays a thumbnail of the video instead of auto playing the video of the product. When you click on the thumbnail it takes you to another page to click on the video to play. Is there a way that instead of a thumbnail the video just plays instead?

 

The website address is: www.helpcomputercentre.co.uk and it's at the top of the home page.

 

Thanks in advance for any help 😊

hi @helpcomp 

You can try this script below. It seems we need trigger play for video as well.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
	$(document).ready(function(){
		if($('button.deferred-media__poster').length > 0){
			$("button.deferred-media__poster").click();
			$(".product__media-item video").on("loadeddata", function() {
			  	var video =  $(".product__media-item video").get(0);
				video.play();
			});
		}
	});
</script>
<style>
 .featured-product .global-media-settings:after {
 	display: none;
 }
</style>

Hope can help

hi @helpcomp 

you can add more CSS below:

<style>
@media screen and (max-width: 749px){
	.featured-product .product__modal-opener {
		display: none!important;
	}
	.featured-product .deferred-media {
		display: block!important;
		width: 100%;
	}
}
</style>

hi @helpcomp 


May I suggest these steps:

1. Go to Store Online-> theme -> edit code
2. Sections/featured-product.liquid
3. Copy code below after that paste before {% schema %}

<script>
  let buttonM = document.querySelectorAll('button.deferred-media__poster');
  if(buttonM.length > 0){
    	buttonM.forEach(function(element){
      		element.click();
  		})
  }
</script>


Hope can help

hi @helpcomp 

Did you apply this script? I dont see it on your store. If it is not work you can try to code below?
1. Go to Store Online-> theme -> edit code
2. Layout/theme.liquid
3. Copy and insert code below to before </body> tag

 

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
	if($('button.deferred-media__poster').length > 0){
		$("button.deferred-media__poster").click();
	}
});
</script>

I removed the code from the first try. Unfortunately the 2nd attempt hasn't worked either but I've kept the code in for you to see. Thanks for your help 🙂

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
	$(document).ready(function(){
		if($('#MediaGallery-template--16261819760883__69229733-8e33-4a8f-91bb-b71a4e728a87 button.deferred-media__poster').length > 0){
			$("#MediaGallery-template--16261819760883__69229733-8e33-4a8f-91bb-b71a4e728a87 button.deferred-media__poster").click();
			$("#MediaGallery-template--16261819760883__69229733-8e33-4a8f-91bb-b71a4e728a87 .product__media-item video").on("loadeddata", function() {
			  	var video =  $("#MediaGallery-template--16261819760883__69229733-8e33-4a8f-91bb-b71a4e728a87 .product__media-item video").get(0);
				video.play();
			});
		}
	});
</script>
<style>
 #MediaGallery-template--16261819760883__69229733-8e33-4a8f-91bb-b71a4e728a87 .featured-product .global-media-settings:after {

hi @helpcomp 

you can try to update CSS below:

 

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
	$(document).ready(function(){
		if($('button.deferred-media__poster').length > 0){
			$("button.deferred-media__poster").click();
			$(".product__media-item video").on("loadeddata", function() {
			  	var video =  $(".product__media-item video").get(0);
				video.play();
			});
		}
	});
</script>
<style>
 .featured-product .global-media-settings:after {
 	display: none;
 }

@media screen and (max-width: 749px){
	.featured-product .product__modal-opener.product__modal-opener--video {
		display: none!important;
	}
	.featured-product .deferred-media {
		display: block!important;
		width: 100%;
	}
}

</style>

NOTE: only update .featured-product .product__modal-opener to .featured-product .product__modal-opener.product__modal-opener--video
