  1. My videos are not auto playing even though it’s set to true in the shortcode

    [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=”260973989?autoplay=1″ width=”1024″ height=”576″ autoplay=”true” anchor=”http://vivaldigroup.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2018/03/Video-Cover-2.jpg”]

    • Hi Tristen, can you try the following. Remove the ?autoplay=1 from the video_id in the shortcode. Let me know if this works for you.
