Vimeo autoplay restrictions

To use autoplay option for Vimeo video the "?background=1&muted=1&loop=0" parameter is necessary. The background parameter is only supported for videos hosted by paid members. As a result, the playlist supports only videos from PRO users. But even PRO users' videos won't be autoplayed automatically (when one video ends). Autoplay only works when is a result of user interaction. Other videos (from free users) can be played and should loaded fine but won't be autoplayed.
