Embedded YouTube Video - Autoplay stops

I am using Xibo 1.8 with a Win 10 running on a Compute Stick.

I am trying to embed a YouTube video/feed that will autoplay and I can get it to run one time through the timeline but on the second go around I see the rest of the information normally and in time on the timeline but the embedded youtube video does not autoplay. It is sitting there waiting on some interaction.

Has anyone run into this issue and if so is there a fix that I can use that will keep the embedded videos playing?

On Windows clients it should be just a matter of ?autoplay=1 at the end of embed YouTube URL even just in webpage module or in a simple iframe in embed html module.

It becomes slightly more complicated on android with the following script - Autoplay Embedded Youtube Videos

You can use the above on Windows players as well.


I added the parameter ?autoplay=1 to the embed code but after the first run through of the timeline the video no longer plays. It runs one time great but after that it no longer works.

Any ideas?

Right, I guess that make sense, please try something like that:

<iframe width="1920" height="1080" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/56R3hU-fWZY?autoplay=1&loop=1&rel=0&controls=0&showinfo=0&cc_load_policy=0&playlist=56R3hU-fWZY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Note that videoId after embed/ and playlist= in the URL is the same.

I suppose you could use just the video src in webpage module as well


replacing the {videoId} with actual YouTube videoId of course, again, the same in playlist and as earlier in the url.

Thanks, I will give that a try.
