I’ve followed the guidelines to make a Twitter Player Card for my website. Because the videos I’ll be sharing are longer than 10 seconds the videoplayer (in the iframe) will not automatically start
The card is approved for my domain and it is working pretty good. The only issue I find is that people have to click twice to start the video. First there’s the preview image with the white play icon in the middle.
When this is clicked, the iframe is loaded, but it (as per the guidelines) doesn’t autoplay.
So the user has to click another time on the player to make it play.
When I try this same action with a video from Youtube or Vimeo, it starts playing right after clicking on the preview-image. When inspecting the source I see that
?autoplay=1 is added to the embed url. When inspecting the
<meta> tags of these pages, this
?autoplay=1 is nowhere to be found.
I’m assuming this is somehow added automatically by Twitter?
Please let me know how I can achieve this same ‘autoplaying’ behaviour as Youtube and Vimeo.
