Tab A - auto mute when playing videos

Hey folks,

Have a new Tab A for our special needs son. There are a bunch of vids we have loaded in gallery that he likes to watch. I have autoplay turned on, that works great...BUT....sound is always muted by default. He has to tap the tiny speaker symbol down in lower left of screen to get sound, and thats an issue, as he hasnt been able to figure that out. Is there any way to always have to sound play? Seems SO stupid to have the sound muted by default.  He watches Youtube stuff, and that works fine, vid and sound autoplays. Its just a gallery issue.

I've just got one of these Tab A's after finally parting with a very old iPad 2

I chose it based on industry reviews and I'm not impressed at all!

I too have the auto mute on the video playback. It's so annoying. I can't believe they designed it like this.


I haven't found a solution yet, but if I do I'll let you know.
