Why flash video player html doesn't autostart?

Sep 03, 2013

Q: Hi Support,

My video does not autostart. It is a local video, on an iPad (unfortunate this is local, and I can not share a webpage with you)

So the question is: How can I specify on a local mp4 file on iPad to auto start? If its a html5 tag, it supports auto start and how can I set it?

Thank you!

A: For all portable devices, where the user may be on a cellular network and be charged per
data unit, preload and autoplay are disabled. No data is loaded until the user initiates it.
This means the JavaScript play() and load() methods are also inactive until the user initiates playback, unless the play() or load() method is triggered by user action.
