Hi,

Is it possible to put a movie on the site that starts automatically when people enter the page ? Can I do that for something I put on YouTube ?
I really want that the movie starts when people open the page...

Thanks

Hello Karin

This is currently not possible when using the YouTube Widget. It is not recommendable, either, to auto-play video or music when someone navigates to your website. Most visitors prefer to have control of what happens on a website they open, so it could put them off and make them leave your site immediately. Also, if your video has sound, this could be disturbing at places where silence is required, such as libraries, offices, etc.

If you'd still like to do it, you could use a different provider to embed your video into your Yola website, such as http://freevideocoding.com. They offer the option "Enable AutoPlay".
