Intermittent video autoplay on Android


#1

Hello,

Nothing huge. I just noticed that even though I have Autoplay blocked under Media settings, videos still sometimes start playing. I don’t visit a ton of sites on my phone, but I am on EW.com very often, as an example. It’s not every time I open a page with a video, but often enough.

Thanks.

Edit: I think I just noticed the video is not actually started and playing, but is like a mini preview for a couple seconds that just repeats, almost like a gif. So maybe video autoplay blocked is fine.

Thanks for the update. Will close the thread. If you still face issues with autoplay please open a new thread so that we can investigate the issue

Thanks
