Video Lightbox

The video doesn't play automatically on mobile devices in youtube video in lightbox

Jun 24, 2013

Q: Hi,

I've just tried the Video LightBox on mobile devices and it doesn't play automatically.
Is there any way to fix it?

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.
