Jwplayer 7 will not auto-play on html5, only flash .....why!!!

I ah e just migrated to jwplayer 7 and I have noticed my videos do not autoplay even I chose autostart=true. I have noticed if I choose use flash if available, it will auto play, otherwise, the loading will continue forever until I click the video twice, then it will start playing in html5.

I never faced this issue in Jwplayer 6. what is the solution for jwplayer 7.

I assume you are using Firefox.

This is a bug introduced in JW7.2.0 when you are using a relative URL to your media.

It is still a problem in JW7.2.3.

The workaround is to use fully qualified URLs.
