I have same issue as well. I think its probably chrome security settings because it works on Firefox and plays automatically. It will however work if you add muted attribute.

<video src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge.mp4" type="video/mp4" controls muted/>

Just to add to this, on Safari there's a setting applied to websites that disables autoplay on any video with audio. I'd assume Chrome is similar which is why adding the muted attribute worked.

gi's comment worked for me, the chrome player automatically stops videos from playing with sound. With the muted attribute tho it works

I ment <video src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge.mp4" type="video/mp4" controls />

Type the embed tag below the video src tag

eg, <embed src="10 seconds video hd.mp4"></embed>

this should work
