Note that the default settings are for autoplay and automute to be "off" indicated by the white circle on the slider. Shifting those to the "on" position will turn the dot blue. Autoplay when "on" (blue dot) will play the video as soon as it appears on the screen, when white and "off" a play button will appear for the viewer to select.
