I want a video to start playing after a click interaction


#1

Hi,

here : http://midnight-romeo.webflow.com/

You can see i have a play image in the middle of my screen. When i click on it, it make my video appear.

I would like the video to start playing at that moment so my user don`t have to press play twice!

Thank you,
Jon

Try adding the following parameter after your video url:

autoplay=1

This should then look like this:

<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/xzvScRnF6MU?autoplay=1" width="960" height="447" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

(of course change url and width / height)

Maybe you have to reembed your video, so that the url changes .. since you did not provide a public url I cant see clearly enough how the video is embedded into the iframe.

Here is another helpful url

Cheers

Nice, now it starts when my page load and not when my play logo as been clicked!

Is that sarcasm ? smile smile

Then there is only a Javascript solution, that will help you in this situation.

Try to paste this code into your "custom code - footer area":

<script>
   $('img').click(function(){
        video = '<iframe src="'+ $(this).attr('data-video') +'"></iframe>';
        $(this).replaceWith(video);
    });
</script>

Then make a screenshot of your starting thumbnail, load that into a webspace or dropbox and paste this embed-code element onto your page (Where your current video is loaded):

The imv-src should be replaced by your handmade thumbnail!!!!!!!

<img src="http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/48231943117b8e0d0db0abdcb57a9032?s=32&d=identicon&r=PG" data-video="https://www.youtube.com/embed/2wqMnD94Y0Eautoplay=1">

When you now click on that image, it should start the video.

If there is a coder out there, that can change that to a normal hyperlink solution - that would be awesome.
Because I can't guarantee that this will mess up your other img tags on your site...

As you can see, its .. working .. in a way ...
