Autoplay off?

this is probably very simple, and im just missing the boat on it, but how do i turn autoplay off? my blog currently sounds like its posessed by a demon with 20 different videos starting as soon as one loads the main url, and i want videos to play only when someone actually clicks the play button.

<iframe style="width: 100%" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

in this code above i see autoplay but how do i toggle to off?

thanks guys and gals :smiley:

Are you a Pro user? If so, the easiest way to embed YouTube videos is to just include the raw YouTube URL in your post – it’ll automatically turn into a video player, where you have to press play to get it to start.

i am.

im using videos from a h5ai implementation though. not youtube. :slight_smile: so they all rest on another domain, but can be hotlinked, embedded etc.

Ah. Then maybe it’d be best to use a <video> tag instead, where you’ll have more control. As long as you don’t add the autoplay attribute to it, it’ll load without playing.

interesting. okay so im messing with that tag now, but i noticed it doesn’t crop the video to a particular size in a nice way like the iframe tag does, can the video and iframe tag be combined?

im looking on w3schools but not getting it just yet there’s a lot there to possibly get lost in.

okay! it no longer sounds like a demon is trying to communicate when you load my blog, videos now only play when they’re clicked on. :laughing:

thank you SO much Matt. awesome! :smiley:
