when embedding a normal YouTube video everything works fine. when i try to embed the sky news live stream the stream does not start, it just sits at the start screen waiting for you to press play.

I know that this is a you tube error and not a xibo error but if anyone can correct my embedded code so that it auto plays that would be appreciated.

tried the following

<!DOCTYPE html>

<iframe width="1920" height="1080" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



<!DOCTYPE html>

<iframe width="1900" height="1060" src="">


this is a good website for testing code this code if anyone wants to try and figure this out?
Tryit Editor v3.7 obviously edit the video to YouTube


Since April 2018, Google made some changes to the Autoplay Policy. You not only need to add the autoplay=1 as a query param, but also add allow=‘autoplay’ as an iframe’s attribute

So while embed youtube video, you will have to do something like this:

<iframe src="" allow='autoplay'></iframe>
