Hi everyone,

 

I have two questions/issue regarding auto play video on Adobe portfolio:

 and in some other regular pages?

  1. How to have an auto play video with audio (not neccessarily a music but some audio effects) to run on my landing page.
  2. How to have an auto play video with audio (not neccessarily a music but some audio effects) to run on a regular page?
  3. I want these videos to be autoplay withought hitting the play button.

 

Any suggestion / solution would be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks

@Leedsunited, @melajuana@Cori5FAF,

Autoplay of video is NOT supported by most mobile devices due to bandwidth and browser restrictions.  So this is not a failure of Portfolio, it's how the web works.  Besides 90% of users have blocked autoplay in browsers because it can be very intrusive.

 

The best approach in web design is to always take the high road and allow users to decide for themselves if they want to play video and audio.   They might have a sleeping baby or co-workers nearby that t

Portfolio isn't supported here, although there are some people who know about it and can answer some questions.

You can place an animated GIF into the Masthead of your landing page.   Lots of people do that.

You can also add video to your project pages.  But users must tap or click to invoke the play button.

Hi, I'm a front-end web developer as well as a designer. It's wrong to reply to this topic with "Well autoplay video is just not supported in most web browsers." That's misleading and not a fact.

Autoplay video is in fact supported in most browsers now and even mobile, using MP4 formats. The appropriate HTML properties combined with the <video> tag makes this possible.

The fact is, Adobe Portfolio is rather restrictive in options it presents users with! The decisions made by this team frankly feel OLD, and not complimentary of modern web standards. We've transitioned into an interactive non-motionless web and the Adobe Portfolio team is slow to catch up!!!

IF anyone knows how to autoplay video with AP I would love to know too. This topic and the lack of support behind it is frustrating.

Also, I would love for the AP team to make a code editor available!!!

Autoplay video is in fact supported...


By @_timterry

========

When video contains no audio track or is "muted," yes.  I defer to what Mozilla says about blocked autoplay.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay

 

If not the default setting, autoplay is easily disabled in all browsers.

https://gadgetstouse.com/blog/2021/10/28/stop-autoplay-videos-in-chrome-edge-and-firefox-browser/

 

Also keep in mind that 90% of users have various add-ons that block everything from scripts & media to pop-ups, ads and other perceived annoyances.  There's not much you can do about user settings & add-ons. People do what people do.

 

If you wish to have more control over your site, feel free to build your own site with Dreamweaver (or other code editor of choice) and purchase commercial web hosting.  There are also online site builders you could use like Webflow and Squarespace (additional fees apply for hosting and other options). 

 

Adobe Portfolio is a FREE service for the convenience of Creative Cloud members.  It certainly does have limitations because it's aimed at inexperienced users with zero coding skills.  The likelihood that Portfolio  will lower their curtain to allow for code insertion from inexperienced users is somewhere between Slim & None.  And I believe Slim already left town. 😁
