Autoplay solution for HTML5 ad player

Autoplay solution for HTML5 ad player

Certain recent versions of web browsers no longer allow ads to be automatically played, which may cause a bad viewer experience. From version, the HTML5 Ad Player contains new functionality to overcome this problem in two different ways:
  • One recommended for desktop browsers, which sets certain attributes to conform to autoplay requirements of the browsers, and
  • One recommended for browsers on mobile platforms, which uses a shared video element as the solution.

For information on how to implement these solutions, see the HTML5 Ad Player Tutorial.
