Hi there Jennifer,
Are you using a Youtube video?

You can get a YouTube video to play automatically when someone opens your site however, you need to edit the code from YouTube.

So this is going to be a little tricky. It is quite hard to explain here because I need to show you what parts of the code to edit.

In Yola you would:

1) Drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page.
2) Paste your code into the HTML editor.
3) Then edit the code to make the video play automatically.

This is how you edit the code:
1) Original code:

2) Replace the section of the code: ""
3) With:

4) So that the final code looks like:

I hope this helps.
