How to UNDO Google's Block on AutoPlay
If you enjoy my web pages that open up with music (https://gabriellechana.blog/2018/07/19/american-military-is-attacking-russia/) and the autoplay does not work in the Google Chrome browser, check this out:
Here is how you configure the setting:
Load chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy in the Chrome browser. Or type chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy in the URL and pull the page up. Note that you do need Chrome 61 or newer on any of the supported operating systems to access the flag.
Click on the menu next to it, and select one of the available options:
Default — autoplay is enabled.
CHOOSE THIS: No user gesture is required — Users don’t need to interact with the document for video or audio sources to start playing automatically.
User gesture is required for cross-origin iFrames — Same as “no user gesture is required” but only for same-origin media content. Audio or video content loaded from other sites require user interaction.
Document user activation is required — Users need to interact with the document before audio or video content is played automatically.
Restart the Chrome browser.
If you want to limit autoplay, select “Document user activation is required”. Note that this won’t block autoplaying media completely, as media starts to play as soon as you interact with the page. It helps with opening pages in the background that play audio or video content automatically though.
