Autoplay all videos on the same page

Hi guys,
I noticed that in your blog posts you have multiple looping videos playing on autopilot all at the same time. I can see that you set the "muted" tags, as well as autoplay.

I am unable to achieve the same on one of my websites, even though I have set the same parameters. Chrome, Firefox or Edge will not autoplay them. Only Safari on Mac seems to do that. While I have a website built on Gridbox, the website where I am trying to get the videos to autoplay is built on WordPress.

Do you have some special functionality implemented on your platform that enables your videos to all play on autopilot at the same time on the same page?

Any insight would be much appreciated!
Thank you.

Hi Goran,

On Gridbox it's can be done with a plugin - video. Here is a settings:




On 3rd party (WP) I can propose you to use this custom HTML code (code from our blog):
<video src="https://www.example.com/link-to-the-video.mp4" autoplay="" loop="" muted="muted" controlslist="nodownload" ></video>

Let us know results :)

Thanks, Artem. I love the ease of use of Gridbox.

So, there is nothing extra going on the back-end that enables the autoplay of multiple videos on a page?

I know that browsers forbid multiple videos to autoplay on the same page, unless they are muted, which I have done. Not sure what else could be blocking them.

After some further test, I can see that the videos can autoplay on the same page when using the WP Guttenberg editor, but not when using the WPBakkery page builder. More troubleshooting to do.
Thank you for your help!

@Rene No. Sorry for the confusion :) I have Gridbox on Joomla on one website and another website with WP.
I wish Gridbox was available for WP :)

BTW @Artem I managed to figure a solution for autoplay videos on WP.
