Does anyone know how to make 1) make a video autoplay in the new version of storymaps and 2) make it repeat endlessly? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Project due in 2 days 🙂

Elliot,

You may want to share your post in the ArcGIS StoryMaps‌ space.

If this is for a school project, I hope you're doing your own research here!

Both of your answers can be found in this article if you are using YouTube videos:

Thank you Adrian. Any chance you know if the new version of StoryMap allows sound with video files stored on ArcGIS. I believe this is anew feature. I can get the video to play this way but no sound.

I’ll go back to the YouTube way you mentioned if not

Hi Elliot, I am not sure about the sound thing. I'd need to test a few things to find out.
