Autoplay on Videos - Desktop V Tablet

#1 Post by Diarm1987 » 2017-08-22 16:34

Hi, I'm new to Filezilla, but just wondering if you could solve this problem for me.

I uploaded a few videos to Filezilla Client recently and noticed that when you play the video on a desktop the video plays automatically once you click the URL.
However when you play the exact same video on an iPad or any mobile device you click on the URL, then you have to click on the "Play" symbol to play the video.

Just to be clear my preferred way of doing it is the second way whereby when you click on the URL it DOESN'T play until you click the "Play" symbol.
Is there any way I can do this on Desktops as well as on the tablet?

You cannot upload anything to FileZilla - it is just a tool. You upload files using FileZilla. Many still think FileZilla is some sort of web space or cloud service - such a thing doesn't exist.

As to the problem, the "Click to play" setting is purely a client one (the end user client, NOT FileZilla). That means, you can do absolutely nothing from the server side. The client needs to be configured accordingly.

This problem is not related to FileZilla and FTP in any way - FileZilla doesn't know what a video is. It only knows files and directories.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
