Support » Plugin: Brightcove Video Connect » Shortcode param for autoplay?

  • Is there a param we can use in the shortcode to turn on/off auto play for a given video? If not, can this be added as a feature that’s supported? Perhaps the option to check it ON or OFF during “INSERT TO POST” page would be viable as well? For now just the ability to set it via short code would be fine for me. Thanks!

  • I had to alter the source of the plugin to add this for my clients – it’s a simple change, hopefully this will be added so I don’t have to keep track of plugin updates.

    Were you unable to add it as an add-on plug-in to the BC Video Connect plug-in?

    I didn’t bother making it a plugin, it’s like two lines – I just diff when a new version comes out and re-add it.

    Is there no way to use a shortcode attribute to get the videos to autoplay with this plugin? Editing the plugin file and updating that after each plugin update is bad practice, surely the plugin maker has a feature to get autoplay to work?

    We have a dev project underway to add more configurability to the player embed including enabling/disabling autoplay. We hope to have it complete in the July/August timeframe.
