    I first posted my query in the "problems" area, as I was unsure whether or not is was a built-in feature, or a chosen one, and I said as much there--that it wasn't really a problem, but an inquiry.

    There, I found out it is not a feature, and so I was sent to this forum to add it as a suggestion.

    I therefore suggest that the video hubs be given a Hub-Author choice as to whether or not the video begins to auto-play, or plays only upon the reader clicking the "play" button.

    I don't like auto-play, as it sometimes begins before the page finishes loading the rest of the Hub, and I'm not ready.  I also often prefer to read the written portion first, and then view the video afterwards.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the suggestion, DzyMsLizzy!

    This was a subject of passionate debate when the feature was first released. We ultimately came to the conclusion that, to follow the best practices of other video hosting sites, we would stick with auto play. That said, I'll bring the issue up again at our next community meeting. smile
