Audio player won't start songs automatically on my Android phone

I have a series of each of which has its own page with code that should make the song start playing automatically but it doesn't. Here's the code I'm using, what can I add or modify that will make the song start playing on load or perhaps within 2 seconds.
<audio src="Songs/Man Of My Words.mp3" controls>    
	<embed 
	src="Songs/Man Of My Words.mp3"
	width="360"
	height="90"
	loop="false"
	autostart="true" />   
</audio>

Open in new window


Thanks!
John

This might help a little.

Or try this code:

try this html5 code.....

 <html>
<body>

<audio controls autoplay>
  <source src="zui you ji.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
</audio>

</body>
</html>

Which browser you are using?

Autoplay on load is blocked by the browser by default.

If you are using Chrome on Android, you need to change the settings.

1. type chrome://flags and press enter in URL

2. Find "Disable gesture requirement for media playback" and enable this setting

Hi Jackie, thanks.  I couldn't find it at first because I was looking for the words "Disable gesture requirement for media playback." On a second scroll, I happened to notice "gesture requirement for media playback," which was enabled and all I had to do was disable it. And that did it!

Thanks again, John
