All video tags included in HTML ads are automatically tracked when booked in our platform. This means user interaction events (play, pause, resume, mute and unmute) and progress events (25%, 50%, 75% and complete).
Our Player and Controls

Currently, autoplay is only available by playing inline. It is not possible to autoplay the fullscreen device player, only user initiated.
Unfortunately it is not possible to autoplay videos on mobile websites and mobile applications lower than iOS 10 and Chrome 53. Weborama does have an alternative method to make it possible to autoplay your video on all mobile devices.
