Hi --

I've noticed jwPlayer does not pass the videoSlotAutoPlay flag within environmentVars passed to initAd(), as outlined is section 8.1.1 of the VPAID spec.

Why not?

Is it in plans for future implementation?

When implemented, how will it behave (or rather, what would be the expectation for how the ad unit should treat this flag)? The spec is a bit vague.

Thank you!

Hi, Rick.

I’m going to have to escalate this to our Engineering team to see what they say. As soon as I hear back, I will let you know.

Hi, there.

Our Product Manager got back to me and it appears that they did indeed miss this and are trying to add it to the player to be released in 7.3.0. You can keep an eye on our JW 7 Release Notes page as we post release notes and bug fixes with every new update.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
