Hi, 

Is there a way to set Sway to automatically play video (and audio) files when the viewer presses "play?"  Same thing for viewing stacked cards...is there way to automate it without the viewer having to click anything? 

Thanks!

Hi Chauncey - unfortunately there's no built-in way to do this right now, but it's a suggestion on our list:

https://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway/suggestions/6608692-autoplay-media

 

In there, one user suggested a way to get videos to autoplay: to copy a YouTube embed code that includes the "autoplay" option, and it sounds like that should work.

 

As for autoplaying photo stacks, the closest existing suggestion I found was this one:

https://sway.uservoice.com/forums/264674-sway/suggestions/20372953-currently-autoplay-only-exists-fo...

 

So they're on our list.  Feel free to upvote the suggestions!

Hi Chauncey.

 

 

Here's a Sway which you can duplicate that has instructions and two auto-playing videos (one from YouTube and one from Vimeo) in it as an example.
