  • Allow Replay:  When checked, the video can be replayed by the respondent. When unchecked, replaying is not available.
  • Allow Auto-Start (Desktop):  When checked, the video auto-starts on desktop computers. When unchecked, video is manually started on desktop (i.e., respondent must click "play"). Due to mobile browser limitations, auto-start is only available for desktop browsers.

4:  Limitations

The video player has some limitations in certain instances. For best compatibility on Desktop/Tablet/Mobile, please use only the HTTP protocol when sending survey links out. Using HTTPS with the video player does transfer video securely when the survey/page is loaded via HTTPS on mobile (Android / iOS devices). Please note that when using HTTPS the JS console will sometime contain mixed content warnings, but the video is transferred securely. The warnings are related to Brightcove's API, and not critical. We are not able to resolve those warnings on our end.

The size of the video file shown in the video player must be less than 2GB

When viewed in full screen:

  • Watermark is not supported fo iOS
  • Different player is used for iPhone (iOS)
  • Fullscreen enables pause and replay by default, overriding any settings for iPhone (iOS)

On mobile:

  • iPhone (iOS) will play in fullscreen by default and enable the seekbar

Autostart:

  • Autostart is only available for desktop browsers
