Ja, Wifi behoort tot de mogelijkheden (extra betaalde optie). Kanttekening: draadloos internet (Wifi) is ten opzichte van een vaste aansluiting vaak iets instabieler en kan daarmee voor een verhoogde kans op een storing zorgen. Afhankelijk van uw kennis op het vlak van het instellen van een Wifi verbinding, adviseren wij om niet te kiezen voor de Wifi optie.

Embedding Autheos

Autoplay configuration?

Please read through our extended description how to configure the autoplay on our github page:

http://autheos.github.io/embedcode/

If you scroll down to point 5 there is a complete description.

Embed code?

First, you will want to add the following line to the  section of your website. That adds the script to your page so that you can start using the embed functionality.

<script src="//cdn.autheos.com/embedcode/latest/autheos-embedcode.min.js">script>

After that, you can start using the code anywhere inside the  element. That looks like the following:

<script>new Autheos().embed({ ean: '1234567890123' });script>

And that’s it. Read ahead to learn how to specify an EAN and language, the placement of the play button and even how to customize or skip the button entirely.

Magento or other plug ins?

At this moment in time we do not have any special plug ins, nevertheless our simple javascript embed code is compatible with every type of webshop front end.
