I built an app that we use for some digital signage at my company, and I've run into a problem with Chrome - it doesn't want to autoplay the video when a new screen is launched. This feature works fine in IE, Edge, and Firefox, but I have to actually click the video to get it to start playing when in Chrome. I've made sure that autoplay is enabled on the video itself inside the PowerApp.
Has anyone else seen this? Any suggestions for a fix? I prefer to use Chrome and its auto-refresh extensions for this application, so I'd love to figure out how to get autoplay to work properly.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just tested and it seems that I can reproduce your issue. I found that autostart works for sample video in Chrome, but not videos from youtube. I will discuss this issue with my collegue and see if there is any suggestions.
If it helps, my videos are being stored in Sharepoint currently. I have a Sharepoint document library as a data source that I'm pulling from using the PowerApps video player.
