Hi - I'm interested in purchasing Yola for our new business. Can we post a "teaser" video that will play when visitors first come to our website using Yola? Or does the visitor have to click on the youtube link in order for it to play? Thanks!!
There is no auto-play function with the YouTube Widget. When visitors open your site, they will need to click on the "Play" button to watch the video.
Website experts recommend not to use auto-play on websites, neither for audio nor for video. Most visitors wouldn't like a website to play things automatically, and it can be disturbing in situations where uncontrolled sound will annoy them and others, such as in a library, while listening to their own music, etc.
If you'd still like to use auto-play for your video, you can use freevideocoding to embed your video into your Yola website. Their service allows to check an auto-start option when creating the video code on their website.
