I have limited experience with Edge Animate implementation to DPS, but I know there's an Autoplay setting in InDesign for the embedded Edge animation. Can you check to make sure this Autoplay setting is set to "on"?

Hi Ross, this may not directly help you with your OAM placement where the animation isn't working for you but it may at least help you visualize the animation as intended on your tablet in the meantime?
I'm seeing the same issue when I try to place a simple animated OAM element (no movement, even though it previews fine through Edge's browser preview). Instead, I used the Edge publish option for "Web" - then I draw a picture box in InDesign and link to the Edge exported html file using the InDesign Web Overlay tab in Folio Overlays. You don't get a preview of the element in InDesign but when you preview on desktop or publish the Folio to your device you should see the animation working okay. It's a workaround for sure but until I can get an answer from Adobe on why the OAM animation isn't working, at least it lets me publish the moving elements that I need. I hope this helps in the interim?
I just tested the placed OAM file and managed to get this to work as it should also. I noted that actually there is an "autoplay" option in Edge when you create the file element but also there is the same "autoplay" option in InDesign for an OAM file when you've linked to it. If you look in the Web Overlay panel you'll see it. Simply checking the autoplay here prompted my animation to work as intended in the desktop preview and on the tablet device. I admit that I probably wouldn't have looked here had I not had to resort to the html placement above.
That's great, thanks for your help. I've got this working now.
