Probably I have just missed something, but I couldn’t find documentation for the autoplayed video. I’ve set autoplay for HTML5 video in settings, but when the video starts, it’s muted. That makes the plugin senseless to me. Is there something I have missed in documentation, or any way at all to make the sound in autoplay on by default?
This is on purpose to make autoplay actually work in most cases.
What browser are you testing this on? To my knowledge Firefox desktop is the only browser allowing unmuted autoplay by default. All the mobile browsers prevent it meaning the video will NOT autoplay if you not also mute it at the same time. Chromium based desktop browsers do also prevent it by default as well AFAIK and the market share of Firefox (I still love it) is just to low to give it special treatment. Also autoplay with audio is generally frowned upon by users anyway, so I do not plan to change that.
