+1 for this issue.
Something ain’t right. I’m also seeing this message
What’s worse, is when I view this from a non-cached session both the video and the fallback image do not load resulting in a BLACK background… yuck.
From ‘Autoplay Policy Changes’ - part of chrome’s latest release notes:
… in order to improve the user experience, minimize incentives to install ad blockers, and reduce data consumption on expensive and/or constrained networks. These changes are intended to give greater control of playback to users and to benefit publishers with legitimate use cases."
Chrome’s autoplay policies are simple:
Muted autoplay is always allowed.
Autoplay with sound is allowed if:
User has interacted with the domain (click, tap, etc.).
On desktop, the user’s Media Engagement Index threshold has been crossed, meaning the user has previously play video with sound.
On mobile, the user has added the site to his or her home screen.
Top frames can delegate autoplay permission to their iframes to allow autoplay with sound.
Not sure why a silent autoplay isn’t working on bubble.
