In some instances where you are displaying a web page on a ChromeOS Player that includes video content, you may find that your video will stop after running for a prolonged period of time. This is due to the autoplay flag not being set on your Organisational Unit within the Google Management Console. We have found that enabling the "autoplay=true" flag that will ensure video content continues playing every time a new cycle of the video content occurs.

How to enable the "autoplay=true" flag

  • Log into the Google Management Console

  • Head to Devices > Chrome > Settings

  • Find the Organisational Unit that houses the Player/device displaying your web page content

  • Under the User and Browser Settings tab, scroll down to the Content section

  • Find the setting for Autoplay Video and click on it

  • In the Allowed URLs field in the Configuration area - enter your URL

    • Include the * wild card within your URL (as per Google's documentation) - this will look something like https://**

  • Hit Save

Upon completing the steps above, the autoplay flag will be enforced on your web page, and any video content on the specified web page will adhere to this setting.
