I have SmartCo theme active. I am trying to make a video play at the top of my home page. What I have done up to now:
- Loaded the video to my media library on the wordpress site.
- Added this code into a raw html block
TheMovie.mov points to the correct location of the uploaded file. If I paste that in my browser address bar, the movie downloads. When I make a new html file on my local machine with the above code, the video plays, but when I run it inside my wordpress site, it doesn’t. It just shows the first frame of the video and doesn’t play.
I have changed the autoplay to controls, which then shows me the play button, clicking that works perfectly, but I can’t get the video to autoplay.
What am I doing wrong?
Also, how can I get the movie to auto-repeat constantly?
PS: I am very, very new to this theme and to Wordpress, so please type advice for a total beginner
Edited to add: I have now opened the site in IE and it auto played, but it doesn’t auto-play in Google Chrome.
