Play button on start up

I just published a course today and noticed that when the course first opens in my LMS and after I publish it, when clicking on the View Project button, there is now a big play button that needs to be clicked on prior to the course opening.  This wasn't previously there.  Is there a way to remove this and have the file just open like it used to?

I thought I did something wrong and decided to check.  I had a previous version of the course in my LMS and it didn't have the play button.  I republished the same file and now there is the play button.  I'm publishing as SCORM 1.2.

Hi there, Clint. Happy to help!

To start, could you tell me about the first slide – does it have a video or audio on it? Also, what browser(s) are you using to view the course?

A few browsers began blocking the autoplay of media files, so if there's a video or audio on the first slide, a gray Play button like the one you're seeing may appear. More information on that here!
