How to make an autoplaying video

Framer supports all types of video formats, the most popular being just a raw .mp4 video and the YouTube components. They are great to combine with for example an overlay to put a teaser or explainer video on your landing page.

Differences per Video Format

While both have an autoplay option (which you can find in the properties panel) there are some differences for the types of video:

The raw .mp4 video will only autoplay if the volume is muted by default. This is enforced in all major browsers (except Safari on desktop).

The YouTube component will actually allow you to autoplay with the volume enabled (but can be disabled depending on the device and browser).
