How to remove the play button that appears while joining a Samba Live meeting through an iOS mobile browser

Sometimes, an idle play button may prevent you from joining a Samba live meeting correctly through your iPhone mobile browser or any other iOS mobile-based browser. There is a simple explanation for this. Your autoplay option may be turned off, preventing the meeting player from moving forward.

The following steps will show you how to turn on the Autoplay option within your iOS-based mobile device:

  1. Go to your device Settings.
  2. Go to Accessibility.
  3. Select Motion > Autoplay videos.
  4. Check if this option is on or off. If it's off, turn it on, and you're good to go.

Note: If your battery is low, you won't be able to turn on Autoplay. The following statement will be shown: "Autoplay is not available when Low Power Mode is on." In this case, charging your mobile device would be required.

Note: As of version 5.39, a functional 'play streams' button is available when running on iOS mobile browsers. This allows iOS browser users to participate in sessions, despite Apple's restrictive autoplay policies.
