Auto play multiple videos when publishing?

New Here ,

I need to get multiple videos on the same page to auto play in my published document.

I have linked the videos in my timing window, they play perfectly in my Indesign preview but once I publish you have to manually play each video which is spoiling the effect.

I would really appreciate help.

Never mind. They're GIFs, not videos.

Many browsers do not allow autoplay of videos especially those with audio.

hi Bob, 

Thank you for the message. There is no issue with auto play when it's one video per page, so it's weird to me that that would be a browser issue? I have seen examples where multiple videos are playing at the same time?

Are these video set to play one after the other or all at the same time? Can you post a link to the Publish Online project? Screenshots of the settings in InDesign might be helpful.

Hi Bob, Thank you for your reply. Please see below link to the published document. I've attached a screen recording of my preview in Indesign to show the effect I would like. I have also attached a screen grab of my settings.

In my media window I have the 'play on page load' and 'play in loop' buttons ticked.

In my timing window I have the below.

Timing is on 'page laod'

Delay: 0 sec

Videos are linked and I have ticked the loop box.

 

Let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

Something that works in EPUB is not going to necessarily work in Publish Online. I'm not a huge fan of it so I don't use it very often. This may be a limitation because when I start one video it stops the other.

 

Perhaps someone else will come along with an idea for you.

Most browsers (well, all) will automatically stop a video as soon as another starts playing and most will not start auto play anyway (but in Publish online mostly that works fine I must say by way of exemption)... but nothing you can do about the only one at a time video sorry to say...

My guess is that it's a single video.
