Wordpress plugin to autostart video and play without any player controls

Hi Experts,

I want one of my Pages to have a video banner that autostarts a video.

I do not want any player controls to appear at any time.

Preferably the video will be self-hosted, otherwise Vimeo would be OK.

I have tried using Advanced Responsive Video Embedder.  
It will autostart, but it displays the player controls at the end of the video.
(Maybe I have overlooked an option that will hide the controls?)

here is a script not a plugin that you can try to implement

there is no control at all so you can set it to loop or add other custom code.

Be aware that on mobile autostart will not work out of the box.
you can try :
 <video id="video" src="video.mp4" poster="image.jpg" preload="auto" onplaying="this.controls=false"/></video>

Open in new window

or start the video when the user touch the screen

function playVideoNow(e)
    document.removeEventListener('touchstart', playVideoNow);

document.addEventListener('touchstart', playVideoNow, false);

Open in new window
