LS Brightspot: Video Auto play

Autoplay lead videos at the top of your page.

Video Leads can be customized to your liking, however the autoplay feature is exclusive to video leads and has some limitations. Depending on the video type, a lead video autoplay does not have a control bar or sound settings that pop up automatically. The control bar can only be accessed by going to the page and right clicking on the video and selecting "Show all controls".
