Yea it is just missing the play button for devices that don't allow video autoplay.

What does this mean? Embedded videos from other hompages does play automatic?

Is there something that can be done for the play button to appear?  Is there something my tablet and rechner123's tablet have in common which is causing this to happen?  For example maybe we both have abnormal CPU's for android?  (mine is Intel not ARM-based)

Just wanted to add that I having the same issue here. Plays fine on mobile but not on tablets (nexus and shield both nvidia k1 chips).

What I have found as a crappy workaround is use Firefox and clear the browser data each time you use it, and you can play the videos. This may work with chrome but I don't want to clear my data to find out.

Do you need any more logs?
