The video is played automatically on the WebDirect on my Mac below with enable interactive contents (PDF, MP3...) autoplay option.
FMS : 220.127.116.112
Client OS : OSX10.11.3
Client Browser Chrome : 49.0.2623.87
Video Source : mp4
However, The video doesn't play at all when i use Safari 9.0.3, It's just show the text link, It's seems like as same as your situation..
I hope this helps you, Thanks.
I restored "QuickTIme Plugin.plugin". Then, video has been played on Mac Safari.
I also checked IE11.0.10240 / Chrome 48.0.2564 on Windows 10 Home edition, It's OK.
Thanks for the info. I am in need of updating my OS since I'm on OS X 10.10.5.
I had the enable set correctly, but it still doesn't autoplay.
While I worry re: my machine, since I will deploy this via web direct and I can't control audience's settings or OS/Browser setting, I wonder if there is a better method to auto load videos - other than populating a field to store the URL. I used to grab the URL from DropBox and have web viewer play the link, but I don't like the way DBX has changed the screen to show show not only the Video, but allowing comments fields etc.
Thanks again for the help, If I figure a better way I will post it here
