This is where you will have all sub-settings, particularly for videos.

Click on ‘settings’. At the bottom left corner, you will find an option labeled ‘videos’. This is the exact location of all the settings you would require with regard to videos. However, it is important to note that there are no many video options.  In most cases, video setting is majorly on default. However, you this is not the setting that you need in order to allow for Auto-Play for HD videos.

You will only view the video after an auto-play but not the voice. This means that you will have to click on the video to activate the voice anyway.
