If you are using YouTube for your sales and capture pages, in my opinion there is nothing cooler than the video autoplaying when the page loads. As you may know, YouTube won’t do this when you embed the code from the site.
What I want to do here is to show you a quick tweak that will get your videos to autoplay.
First off I want to show you the standard iFrame embed code that you can get from YouTube to embed your video, and then I am going to show what code you need to edit (Don’t get scared and give up on me yet, it is really quite simple )

That refers to whether or not the video should show related video suggestions on the screen just after the video has finished (it is written into the code by YouTube if you uncheck the ‘Show suggested videos when the video finishes’ box)
I now want to show you a piece of working code that I have on my blog training capture page (where I have changed the code to make the video autoplay -
So simply by replacing the rel=0 with &autoplay=1&rel=0 your video should autoplay
