I'm trying to use HTML5 video in my React App the following way:

<Section gridStart="1366px" bgColor="gradient" type="flex">
          <Block flexBasis="70">
            <video width="100%" autoPlay loop>
              <source src="/videos/ai-vid.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
            </video>
          </Block>
          <Block flexBasis="30">
            <Paragraph>
              <Fade bottom cascade>
                <H2 light>Accessibility</H2>
                <H4 light>
                  Lorem ipsum dolor, sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit.
                  Molestias dolores quia sit harum accusamus quaerat
                  repudiandae.
                </H4>
              </Fade>
            </Paragraph>
          </Block>
        </Section>

But this will not auto start when the page loads the first time. But when I visit another page and come back to the home page, the video works. Any idea what's happening? Any suggestions to make it work properly and esp on mobile devices will be appreciated.
