Video Texture issue (DOMException: play() failed because the user didn't interact with the document first)

I am using a video Texture. Sometimes the video is not playing. And in the console, I am getting the following error.

babylon.js:16 Uncaught (in promise) DOMException: play() failed because the user didn’t interact with the document first. Autoplay policy in Chrome - Chrome Developers

Any Solutions?

You can not autoplay a video unless muted in the browsers.

Try to always start playing after a user click.

like button.onclick = () => {; }


Thanks for your reply @sebavan . But this is video texture, while the scene is loaded, the texture needs to be there.

I know but it is impossible to autoplay not muted in the browsers today or you would still have plenty of ads playing in all your web pages.

It is not a Babylon restriction but a browser one :frowning:
