When using the Vonage Video API on Chrome v 71 or later, audio and video won't play properly.
- Video API
- Chrome 71
- Audio Auto-Play
In Chrome 71, the audio auto-play policy is enabled. Due to this policy, Vonage Video API applications require a change.
As per the policy, it is good practice to wait for user interaction in a WebRTC application before starting audio playback as user would be aware of something happening. You can read more about it in Chrome's documentation.
If users subscribe to a stream without publishing, with the new Chrome 71 auto-play policy the subscriber will not play audio video stream (will be blocked) until the user interacts with the page.
