Angular HTML Fullscreen Video Autoplay Not Working

Tags: , , , ,



Can anyone explain why this autoplay video is not working in chrome?

The video is stored in firebase storage. It plays when you visit a page and then go back to home page, but not when you first enter the page on refresh. It is an angular 6 application as well.

  <video autoplay muted loop>
    <source type="video/mp4" src="https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/gortonluxury.appspot.com/o/videos%2Fhero-video.mp4?alt=media&token=1231bda8-4240-4c1d-a0b9-9c5b50b320d0">
  </video>

Answer

<video loop muted autoplay oncanplay="this.play()" onloadedmetadata="this.muted = true">
    <source src="video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
</video>

onloadedmetadata & oncanplay=”this.play()”

Are the answers to getting it to load on an Angular 6 project.
