Mobile Autoplay

iOS and Android have recently started allowing videos to autoplay if they are muted or contain no audio tracks, however JW Player still does not seem to autoplay on mobile even though this functionality is allowed by the browser now.

If I use a just a standard video element with the attributes 'autoplay' and 'muted', the video will autoplay just fine, but when using JW Player with the options {muted: true, autostart: true}, the video still will not autoplay.

Is there something I can do to make this work, or will this be in a future update? I feel like this is a critical feature that users have been waiting for.

There is an update pending that will address these new abilities. I do not have an ETA, but it should be in the next several weeks.

You can sign up here to get e-mails on player updates. Additionally, any added functionality or features will show up in your JW dashboard or the release notes page.
