How To Autoplay YouTube Embedded Videos

One of my millions and millions readers of PinoyBanda (*wide grin*) had asked me How To Auto Play YuTube Embedded Videos? I told him it’s easy, go check out https://www.everything-eli.com/inmylife …instead of saying “Go ask Google” *grinning still*

So I have to post the instructions on how to autoplay YouTube videos here – the one I found out when I asked Google a few months back.

All you need to do is get the embed code from YouTube’s page. For example, shown below is where you can see the code (and there’s Matthew dancing Itaktak Mo :)

Let’s extract that code to show you what part of it you must modify… Here’s the code:

<object width=”425″ height=”350″><param name=”movie” value=”https://www.youtube.com/v/dqXEabmAY-Y”></param><param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”></param><embed src=”https://www.youtube.com/v/dqXEabmAY-Y” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” wmode=”transparent” width=”425″ height=”350″></embed></object>

Take note on the URL/Address within the embed code:


All you need to do is add ‘&autoplay=1‘ to the end of it, save and presssttooo! An autoplaying YouTube Video!

Here’s another one you could try. From that same address (with or without the ‘&autoplay=1’) you can still add another option. Try adding ‘&loop=1‘ (or autoloop, can’t remember which and too lazy to try it out). This will make your video loop around infinitely !

If you want to see the finish product, visit PinoyBanda and check out the featured YouTube video. It will autoplay for you! (disable the loop though). There! Hope it helps!

    Hey nice tip. Although I advice that you should not set it to autoplay. Not only does it slow down the loading of your page, some people don’t want to watch it anyways… (based on personal experiences when browsing for cute girls in friendster whaha) Have a nice evening. =)
