Why is there a play button on my videos on mobile?

Mobile devices will occasionally enter a "low power mode" that restricts browsers from autoplaying videos in order to preserve battery life. This is most often caused by the iOS battery saver mode or based on a slow connection. While in this mode, autoplaying videos will not work as expected.

While this isn't something that's possible to bypass in the browser, we've been able to apply code to our themes that can detect low battery mode and will show the video's manual play button whenever possible.
