I would like to know how to make my embedded video play automatically when someone visits my landing page. Thanks.
Hi Easton - It depends on what website is hosting your video. If your using vimeo you can follow this guide:
Youtube requires a similar setup. Simply grab the embed code and append
to the end of the url.
Thanks! I’ll definitely give it a shot.
Hey Johnny or anyone else. I used this code to make a Vimeo video autoplay. It worked on Chrome for Mac but not on Chrome for iOS. Any tips for that?
Alyssa from Unbounce here
I’m glad you got Autoplay working on your desktop version of your page! In regards to iOS and mobile in general - the different OS developers have intentionally disabled autoplay on mobile devices to reduce data usage, and prevent unwelcome or intrusive videos… You can read a good article on this here https://www.aerserv.com/why-does-video-autoplay-on-mobile-devices-not-work/ I suppose on a user experience level it’s nice if they get to click play
Many Unbounce pages choose to hide the video background from the mobile version, and instead apply a mobile-only background image.
I hope this helps Josh! Feel free to let me know if you have any further questions on this
