I can see you have auto play allowed, that means it should show on devices that allow auto play.

 

You likely won't see auto play on most phones, they tend to disable auto play to respect the user's data usage (videos are heavy and eat up data).

 

If you can't get it to auto play on the desktop browser you're using, try another browser to see if it's just a browser setting. If you can't get it to auto play on any desktop browsers, then I would either contact your theme developer or search something like "how to embed youtube videos with autoplay", then experiment with the settings you see there and in your code (it's the <iframe section that embeds the video).
