Automatically playing videos
A number of browsers including Google Chrome and Apple’s Safari have disabled “autoplay” or will only allow it with the audio muted. This change was made to stop advertisers from placing videos on pages that automatically play (with audio), which can be rather annoying – so in a number of cases this can make for a better browsing experience.
However, it can also hinder sites that have a legitimate use for automatically playing videos with audio, and as such, if you would like to use this capability on our web site, you may need to change some browser settings, depending on your browser.
If you would like to allow auto play you have a few options, depending on your browser:
Firefox does not block auto play for videos, as it stands at time of writing.
Using Internet Explorer 11
Internet Explorer does not block auto play for videos, as it stands at time of writing.
Using Chrome: Change settings to allow “autoplay”
NOTE: This setting in Chrome effects all web sites. Enabling this will allow other web sites to auto play video as well.
When chrome is loaded, you can navigate to the following page (type this into your browser, in a new tab):
It should look something like this:
You can change this setting to “No user gesture is required”:
Once this setting is changed, in the bottom right hand corner you can click “Relaunch now” for the setting to take effect:
Now videos on our site should auto play in Chrome.
Using Safari: Changing per-site settings for our site, training247.com.au
When using Safari, there is a per site-setting that can allow auto play.
Simply navigate to our website in safari, www.training247.com.au
Click on Safari -> Settings for this website:
Now you can allow autoplay from our site only by clicking on “Auto-Play” -> “Allow All Auto-Play”:
Now when using our modules, the videos should auto play.
