Video Player Mobile

I usually use the video player with autoplay on.

But I noticed that on the mobile (I know the autoplay does not work on the mobile), the video player does not display the big play button in the middle of the player.

And the only way to run a video is to press the play button from the control bar at the bottom of the player.

Print screen:

That's how it should look (So it was up to wp 4.8.3)

That's what it looks like now

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Thank you!

Hi @studiosx thanks for the report. After some testing, I can confirm that when autoplay is selected, Safari's mobile browser is no longer showing the play icon. I believe this is handled via the device's native video player so we would need to add custom controls to account for this use case.
