Is there a way to add a video to my home screen that will automatically play without the need to press a play button?

 

Yes you can, Just update the ifame code like below 

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/w-xDPPS7FSY?rel=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

Awesome! But I don’t understand where I am suppose to embed that string, I watched a video and I tried to place it in the INDEX.LIQUID but i got nothing, can you explain where exactly and how to add the string?

the site is www.overthetoplids.com and I managed to add the video by using a “slider” but that was with the link and I cannot make it auto play.

THANKS GURU!!

This is where and one of the ways I have tried to add it

<div class="index selections">
  {{ content_for_index }} 
</div>
{% if template='index' %}
<div id="feature_video"></div>
<object <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/w-xDPPS7FSY?rel=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div>
</div>
  {% endif %}

 

But again I get nothing! AAAGGGGGHHHHH

Well it looks like I got it to work on a desktop nut it will not autoplay on a mobile device, what gives?

Mobile devices are where I really want it to auto play!

Thanks,

Jeff

Appreciate trying to help, but no one seems to have the answer to this question. Maybe a Shopify expert can jump on and guide us on how to get a video to autoplay

Hey - Just an FYI on this. Pretty much all mobile browsers do not support autoplay on video! 

 

Thanks
