Videos Autoplay – (Show in Lightbox – Loads after user interaction…)
Issue: Autoplay doesn’t work even though the “autoplay” is set to “on” in the code (autoplay=1).
Note: This is not the Enfold issue, this can be verify by switching to a WordPress default theme.
Reason: Google changed their autoplay policies, for more information: https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2017/09/autoplay-policy-changes
Solution: The “autoplay” can still be apply but need to mute the video by adding “&mute=1“, to the iframe code.
Choose a preview/fallback image:
Also need to add image as “Video Fallback”.
See Samples below:
