HTML5 Video autoplay attribute is used to play the video automatically until the user does not stop it.
The attribute holds a boolean value to start/stop the video. If this attribute is present, the page will open with video autoplay. You don’t need to start it manually.
The video attributes are useful when you want to add extra functionality to the videos. You can control all the features of the video using HTML5 video autoplay and other attributes..
Here is the Example:
<video width="300" height="300" autoplay="autoplay">
<source src="../../media/birdreaction.mp4" type="video/mp4"/>
Your Browser does not support the video element
HTML5 video autoplay attribute values
|1||autoplay||Put autoplay=”autoplay” as the attribute and its value to use it for video.|
|2||none||You can use autoplay in the video start tag to autoplay the video. This is the blank value, simple put autoplay in the video start tag.|
This attribute is not required to use. But if you want to autoplay the video on page open, you must use this attribute.
