Small Width Videos Won't Autostart on Page Load

Hi there,

I'm using a pretty straight forward approach to create this small video spot on my page.
The issue is: if I add the video and use it's default size ( > 550px width ) the autostart: true works just fine.
BUT, if I try to resize it - either on the JS setup or in the HTML - to something around 320px width, it just won't start. It get's stuck with this circular flash play button and I have to hit the button for the video to start. Currently testing on Chrome and Firefox.

The .js code setup:

file: videoPath,
autostart: true,
mute: true,
repeat : true,
controls : false,
primary: ‘flash’

Script version is: 6.8.4616

Any help will be much, much, much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Hi, there.

Can you please give me a link to a page where you have the affected player installed?

Also, please note that Chrome automatically blocks Flash content that is stored on another server if it is less than 400px wide or 300px high. However, it should still work on Firefox.
