How To AutoPlay a YouTube Video In WordPress

One reader @todaysmiracles asked me if I would do a video about how to autoplay a video–here it is.

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

Step 1. Grab your youtube embed code
Step 2. Paste the code to a notepad
Step 3. Use this &autoplay=1
Step 4. After the Youtube “string” see below in blue–paste the above code–in two places–see example below in blue.
Step 4. Open up your blog post in the html editor tab
Step 5. Paste your new embed code

Before Code

<object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/qnF-l6kgQvg&hl=en_US&fs=1&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6“></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/qnF-l6kgQvg&hl=en_US&fs=1&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object>
