Any way to autoplay videos on IOS?

Jun 30, 2015

I have videos embedded in my course from the Wistia streaming service. They are set to "autoplay" from Wistia, but of course IOS overrides that setting and the user must click to play each video.

Has anyone figured out a way to trick IOS and simulate a user click on a video, in order to make the video autoplay when the slide loads?

Yes, I was just hoping there was a hack to get around this. Some of the videos on our slides are less than a minute long, some longer, with about 30 slides. I don't want IOS users to have to KEEP clicking the play button on the media. I know why Apple says they did this, but I guess they had not heard of wifi?
