# \movie autostart does not work in beamer

I want to include a video in my beamer presentation by \movie and need that starts automatically when the slide opens. There is an autostart option but does not work. I am reading the pdf by pymress on Windows and I can not use \includemedia. This is the code that I'm using:

\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture, overlay]
\node [anchor=south, inner sep=22pt] at (current page.south) {
\movie[
width=0.47\linewidth,
height=0.31\linewidth,
autostart,
poster,
showcontrols
]{}{file.mp4}
};
\end{tikzpicture}
