Videos embedded on SharePoint page require two clicks to play

Copper Contributor

When I embed an mp4 file stored in my SharePoint site onto a SharePoint page using a file viewer web part, the video requires two clicks to play. When the page opens, an initial image with a play button displays. When I click that, it then shows the actual video file with another play button showing that I have to click again to start the video playing. It would be great to have options to either autoplay the video when the page loads (zero clicks) or auto play the video after clicking the initial image (one click).

@Mike_Kelly I am unable to reproduce this issue. It works fine for me, video played with single click only.


On page load: 


On click of play button (video played automatically):
