I have a first page with a video set to loop and auto play. I also have a indesign square covering a bit the movie. For some reason when I see it in HTML the video does not auto play. Only when I reload the page it plays or if I go to the next page and then back. So it seems it needs to refresh first. Anyone know what the solution can be?

Several browsers limit audio and video playback that isn't triggered directly by a user action. The workaround is to use the in5 Video Interactive Widget (in5 > Interactive Widgets > Video) and set the video to both Auto Play and Mute. Here's more information:
