If you are using Sharepoint 365:

According to Microsoft

In a recent update to Office 365 that is currently being deployed, the ability to automatically switch to new images is being deprecated for libraries that do not have a Content Delivery Network (CDN) enabled. This means that the AutoPlay functionality for existing websites will no longer function for Picture Library Slideshow web parts.

The full information from Microsoft can be found Here

To use the CDN together with the Picture Library Slideshow web part, your SharePoint Online tenant administrator must enable the CDN within your Office 365 tenancy.

You can find the steps to enable CDN within tenancy here
