Why can't I get my embedded video hosted on Vimeo to autoplay? I can't seem to find an answer. I don't have access to the additional Embed settings in Vimeo. Is there something you do when inserting the Vimeo hosted video on the CC landing pages?

Hello @L21929 ,

 

Video blocks / links won't play automatically in browsers - they won't be embedded, they'd need to open up in Vimeo to play. The only exception I've seen is where Chrome will deliberately allow video blocks with YouTube links to play in a webpage sometimes.
