videos set to autoplay in SL360- not starting on android

We have some classes that feature several large videos that when published play just fine on all browsers on PCs, and on ipads, but with android- the timeline moves like it is playing but I have to still hit pause and then play for it to start.  Is that a glitch? setting?  I have double checked and the video is set to play automatically.

I have gone through and read the recent video posts and none are quite what we are experiencing.

Hello Kristy - Videos that are configured to launch in a new browser window may not automatically start playing in HTML5 output. This is a function of HTML5 browsers that can't be controlled. Some browsers will autoplay videos in this scenario, while others won't. If a video doesn't begin on its own, just tap it or click its play button.
