Video-Hosting (YouTube Places) that Have Autoplay?

6 replies
I want to host a little sales video but I want to to automatically begin as soon as the page is loaded.

What video hosting places (such as Youtube) have this feature?

Thanks.

    Youtube has this feature, you just need to add this variable to the 2 places within your object/embed code... right after the filename...

    &autoplay=1

    Example:

    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hB0hKmb4tKU&autoplay=1"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hB0hKmb4tKU&autoplay=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

    another neat trick, you can disable the Related Videos that are shown at the end of your video by adding this:

    &rel=0

    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hB0hKmb4tKU&autoplay=1&rel=0"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hB0hKmb4tKU&autoplay=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

    Hey Oilman.

    I use Amazon S3 for most of my videos - it's really inexpensive and they can't shut my videos down for any violations of TOS (unless I violate their TOS and a sales video alone would not do that) - like YouTube can for sales videos. Of course, it can get really expensive - my Amazon S3 bill last month was $0.26 - and we had a good bit of local activity on our account. It's worth paying a little to not have that YouTube logo on my video. Of course, if you're trying to take advantage of the viral capability, then YouTube can't be beat - and there are others that are good as well.
