Mp3 Player


  • Richard Hernandez started the conversation

    Greetings...I was wondering if my music can be heard via my mp3 player once my homepage is displayed, rather than having to click on the play button on my home page, footer. If this is an option for desktop and mobile versions, can you please email me the chain so I can attempt to update this step?

    Auto-play audio when your page loads is now banned by most desktop and mobile browsers including Chrome and Safari. This is what we call a "Auto-Play Policy". To play audio in a web browser, the user has to interact with the page before audio can play. Interactions is something like clicking a menu, a button, scroll down the page, etc.

    The closest thing you can do is to automatically fire the sticky footer player when the page load and then, users will have to click play. To do it, edit your page and select your playlist in the Music dropdown. See screenshot: https://d.pr/i/ouq7Ay
