Video Not Autoplaying in Opera or Firefox

    Sorry if I've overlooked anyone else asking this same question, we've built a site which uses the SHOW Responsive Video Suite widget (specifically, the background video portion) and it's working perfectly in all browsers we've tested it on except for Opera and Firefox.

    In those two browsers, the video does not automatically play and a play button appears on top of the video.

    Is there a work around for this to make the video auto play for Opera and Firefox?

    Most mobile devices (including the iPad and iPhone) prevent audio or video files from automatically playing.

    Thanks for the quick response! I know that mobile devices won't autoplay these background videos, sorry I wasn't more specific in my original post.

    It's Firefox and Opera on desktop computers that I'm referring to.

    I've put together a quick video to demonstrate...

    ...the video is still processing right now so it'll probably be low res for the next several minutes.
