Start page timer on click


Hi friends, any insights on this would be much appreciated.

I have a Vimeo video embedded (using a Text/Instructions element) on a page with a countdown timer, which is the length of the video. This is to help ensure that the respondent watches the video before proceeding to the next page.

Unfortunately, Auto-Play does not work on all browsers anymore (I used to simply set the video to autoplay, and the countdown timer and the video would end at the same time).

Therefore, what we need to do is start the page timer only after the respondent has clicked Play on the video (for our purposes, we would accept “click anywhere” to initiate the countdown).

Can anyone suggest a solution to start the page timer on click (or, alternatively, some other solution to achieve this desired outcome).

Many thanks in advance.
