Tutorial :How can I autoplay a video using the new embed code style for Youtube?


I can't work out how to autoplay a video using the new embed code style for Youtube. I tried adding &autoplay=1 to the url, which worked with the old style, but it didn't work. For example, http://www.youtube.com/embed/JW5meKfy3fY is the embed link, but http://www.youtube.com/embed/JW5meKfy3fY&autoplay=1 doesn't work. Can anyone tell me how to do it? Thanks


Just put "?autoplay=1" in the url the video will autoload.

So your url would be: http://www.youtube.com/embed/JW5meKfy3fY?autoplay=1

In case you wanna disable autoplay, just make 1 to 0 as ?autoplay=0


Actually, you will have to use the "?" instead of "&" for your first parameter only. If you use more than one parameter, you will then have to add "&" to the chain.

For instance, if you want to add autoplay and closed captioning, you will have to add this portion to your embedded video URL: ?autoplay=1&cc_load_policy=1.

It would look like this:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/  oHg5SJYRHA0?autoplay=1&cc_load_policy=1" frameborder="0"  allowfullscreen></iframe>  


You need to add an extra parameter, alongside the autoplay=1


making it:

<iframe src="your-video-url?rel=0&amp;controls=0&amp;showinfo=0&amp;autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media"></iframe>  


Okay this is an example for the new embed code for youtube videos.

<iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="560" height="345" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8v_4O44sfjM" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe>  

if you want to autoplay it, at the src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8v_4O44sfjM" add the ?autoplay=1 parameter

So the code will look like this:

<iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="560" height="345" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8v_4O44sfjM?autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe>  

i tried this on my blog and it works ! Hope this help (:


YouTube Help says that &autoplay=1 has to be after the video ID - I assume, immediately after.


The only way I was able to get autoplay to work was to use the iframe player api.

<div id="ytplayer"></div>  <script>  // Load the IFrame Player API code asynchronously.  var tag = document.createElement('script');  tag.src = "https://www.youtube.com/player_api";  var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];  firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag);  // Replace the 'ytplayer' element with an <iframe> and  // YouTube player after the API code downloads.  var player;  function onYouTubePlayerAPIReady() {      player = new YT.Player('ytplayer', {          height: '480',          width: '853',          videoId: 'JW5meKfy3fY',          playerVars: {              'autoplay': 1,              'showinfo': 0,              'controls': 0          }      });  }  </script>  


None of the above worked for me in the current youtube embed. Try this, it actually worked for me :)

Hope it helps!

<iframe width="925" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iD5zxjySOzw?rel=0&amp;autoplay=1&amp;controls=0&amp;showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>  


You are using a wrong url for youtube auto play http://www.youtube.com/embed/JW5meKfy3fY&autoplay=1 this url display youtube id as wholeJW5meKfy3fY&autoplay=1 which youtube rejects to play. we have to pass autoplay variable to youtube, therefore you have to use ? instead of & so your url will be http://www.youtube.com/embed/JW5meKfy3fY?autoplay=1 and your final iframe will be like that.

<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/xzvScRnF6MU?autoplay=1" width="960" height="447" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>  


Just add ?autoplay=1 after url in embed code, example :

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/  oHg5SJYRHA0" frameborder="0"></iframe>  

Change it to:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/  oHg5SJYRHA0?autoplay=1" frameborder="0"></iframe>  


None of yours are solved my problem. But, I found a good solution for me to work properly right now. In between tags write this code:

<div style="position: fixed; z-index: -99; width: 100%; height: 100%">    <iframe frameborder="0" height="100%" width="100%"       src="https://youtube.com/embed/**[CHANGE HERE WITH YOUR YOUTUBE VIDEO ID]**?autoplay=1&controls=0&showinfo=0&autohide=1">    </iframe>  </div>
