how can i autoplay my Youtube video?

If you want to have your video autoplay when visitors come to your webpage, you need to add some code to the end of your YouTube URL. 

If your YouTube embed is:

< iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Sb4oAS4sC24?rel=0" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></ iframe>

You need to add &amp;autoplay=1 to the end of your YouTube URL. Our Link would look like this:

< iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Sb4oAS4sC24?rel=0&amp;autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></ iframe>


Tips from Virteom

In the last few years, more and more websites have been secured with an SSL certificate. If your website is secure (https) then you'll want to make sure the videos you embed are also https. If your website switches over to being secure, and you have videos that are not -- it will allow for mixed content (and your videos won't display). 

If you don't copy your embed video exactly as it appears from Vimeo/YouTube, you will break the page. When you don't copy embed codes exactly as they appear, your page will display all white (maybe with your website's header or footer) resulting in the need to reach out to Virteom for support.
