You can set your video to begin playing automatically when a customer visits that page by adding a straightforward parameter to your YouTube URL. This can be particularly valuable for a How This Product Works or About Us page, where a customer is expecting cool content.
Think carefully if you opt to autoplay your embedded video. Contingent upon the specific situation, setting videos in autoplay can pester your guest and wind up causing more damage. Remember your guests might shop discretely—they might be in a calm bistro, a library, or on a meal break at work.
