Auto play of vimeo videos

Hi everyone

We are embedding videos using Vimeo embed code. This all works ok, but I can't get the Vimeo videos to play automatically. This means that anything that is synchronised with the slide's timeline goes out of time with the video because the video waits for the user to click on it to start it.

Any help would be appreciated.

David.

One workaround that I have been using is to use a short starter video on my first slide that allows the learner to have access to the play button. Then on the following slides, I cover the vimeo video with a transparent shape preventing access to the video controls from the learner and then setting up a conditional next button based on completion of the video
