Google Chrome Browser

Depending on your current version of Google Chrome web browser, Google has disabled the autoplay of videos. This will cause the video in DAKboard to show a play button instead of actually playing the video. To work around this, follow the steps below to enable autoplay in the Chrome browser.

Open Chrome and enter the following address into the address bar: chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy

In the "Autoplay policy" section, click the dropdown and select "No user gesture is required".  Restart Chrome and videos on DAKboard will now autoplay.

If autoplay is not displayed in the list, your version of chrome will not allow this to be selected and will normally autoplay already.  If it does not, we recommend upgrading the browser to the latest version available.

Other Browser/Device

Many devices that support video in DAKboard such as the Amazon Silk Browser and other TV/Tablet browsers will not autoplay video in DAKboard screens.  Since this is an application level setting, DAKboard cannot change this functionality.  We suggest reviewing the browser capabilities and consulting the manufacturer to autoplay videos or select an alternative display device such as the DAKboard CPU to connect to the display alternatively.
