Auto Play Videos

Normally videos can be played only on their single pages. Bimber offers autoplay option on Stream collections (check Gagster demo as an example) so a user can watch videos directly on the post list.

How Does It Work?

While scrolling a list of posts, each video that enters visible viewport starts playing.
When the video will go out of the viewport, it stops. Scroll back to that video to resume playing. For more convenience, all videos start playing muted.

Enable Autoplay

To autoplay videos in stream collections, please:

  1. Go to the WP Dashboard > Appearance > Customize panel
  2. Open to the Posts > General section
  3. Check the Autoplay videos in Stream collections option

Supported Media

Autoplay supports:

  • Embedded videos (like YouTube, Vimeo or Dailymotion)
  • Self-hosted videos (like MP4)
  • GIF animations

Works With Lazy Load

Autoplay works with lazy loaded videos. Besides better user experience you gain also better performance. Save bandwidth by loading only videos that users can really see.

GIF Player

GIF animations work like other videos. They can be played/stopped automatically when entering/leaving viewport. But as GIFs have no video controls (like Play | Pause | Stop), you can stop/play it by clicking on them.

To disable the GIF Player, please do as follows:

  1. Go to the WP Dashboard > Appearance > Customize panel
  2. Open to the Posts > General section
  3. Uncheck the Use GIF player option
