In response to the ever increasing levels of audiences viewing online video on mobile devices, our player update v2.55 will be releasing soon, here’s a summary of the key features added:
Muted auto play on Safari Desktop
Our players now come with the option for videos to auto play on Safari Desktop, but muted. This will mean that videos will automatically start while browsing Safari, but they remain muted until the user selects them, thus presenting an eye catching but unobtrusive way to draw in viewers.
Muted auto play on iOS
Similar to the above except this time for iOS, meaning that the feature is able to be toggled on or off for Apple mobile users.
iOS inline playback
Toggling this feature means that the video does not automatically open as full screen and sits within the page as normal, note that this does not disable full screen and still leaves the option open if the end user wishes. This feature is built with all iOS devices in mind, and will be the default platform behaviour.
All of the aforementioned features can be toggled on or off within the studio section of MP, if you wish to find out more about these features then get in contact with your designated account manager.
