I have embedded a youtube video on my website using the "Video" element. How do I make that video auto play?

Thank you!

In the URL that you get from Youtube, append ?autoplay=1 and that should do it.

Hi Michael,

I haven't worked with the video element much but doing a quick look under the hood, I didn't spot ways to address the typical defaults. Looks at first glance, as if you might have to add the parameter to the link or insert the parameter(s) into the iframe after exporting the page?

For the HTML5 player details & examples-

Hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Gordon
