Chrome will soon be blocking video autoplay on Desktop too

Hello,

Chrome has announced that autoplay of videos will soon be blocked on desktop by January 2018 (autoplay on mobiles is already blocked but apparently may be overridden if your page is bookmarked on the mobile homescreen).

Information here: https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org ... o/autoplay

Due to changes on the autoplay video and sound policies, it's important to try to remove autostart/autoplay options as soon as possible and add a button to activate the video and/or the sound.

Tip for autoplay on background sound:
1)- Deactivate the project sound

2)- Add a way to activate the sound manually with a user interaction

Tip for video spots:
Pause the videos on start and add a button to play the video.

Tip for the action display a video:
Pause the video on start. A play button will be added automatically.
