Research (Chromium) autoplay policy #Help



  • Hi all,

    Hope you're well

    Thanks for software

    Today I have a problem with autoplay in the latest version (i.e. 2.0.1309.29 (Stable channel) (64-bit))

    https://player.fm/series/watershed-podcast-1603913/october-2018-cinema-podcast - this podcast episode should play automatically but it doesn't. Even when I click to play I see console errors, notably:

    Uncaught (in promise) DOMException: The play() request was interrupted by a call to pause(). https://goo.gl/LdLk22

    ... which I suspect is related to Chromium's autoplay policy[y] change(s)

    Aside, can anyone confirm when this feature/policy changes reached Vivaldi?

    However, my suspicions seems wrong because experimentation with the following flags has no effect:

    vivaldi://flags/#autoplay-policy
    vivaldi://flags/#enable-autoplay-ignore-web-audio

    Can anyone else reproduce my issue?

    If you have any issues (e.g. questions/queries) happy to help

    Hope to hear back

    Keep up great work!

    Cheers
