Hi Melanie,

You have to turn ON the Autoplay option of the video layer.

And please do not forget to clear your caching plugins before testing your site again.

Please check your site now.

Thank you for your help although I cleared the caching plugin for my site but it still isn’t playing On my phone. It spins for a few seconds then stops and won’t play.

Hey Melanie,

You also need to clear the browser cache of your phone. You can make use of the private browsing mode in your mobile phone and test your site again. Kindly check this out:

Hope this helps.

I did clear my browsing cache and tried incognito mode. I also tried my husbands phone and same issue. I tried 3 different browsers on my phone.

So you have no issue with It playing on your phone?

I also tried using my cellular data vs my home wifi and no difference. We both have iPhones, I can’t check on a different phone unfortunately.

Hello Melanie,

I do not have any issue playing the video on my Android phone. I will forward this thread so my colleagues who has an iPhone so that they can double check your site.


Thank you for all your help so far.

You are most welcome!

I had my friend try their Samsung phone when they were here and the video played on their phone. So it is just an issue with my husband and my iphone. It’s so odd.

Hey Melanie,

I checked on an iPhone and the Youtube video is working / playing also.


I believe there’s something on your phones and/or network that prohibits Youtube video playback.

I’d recommend you consult with a local IT expert in your area to check what’s wrong with your iPhones.


Ok thank you for your help. At least I know it’s just our phones so at least everyone else sees it properly.

You’re welcome, Melanie.
