You can set to automatically play a video when a customer visits a page in your site by adding a straightforward parameter to your YouTube URL. This is ideally posted in the Product Page or the About Us page.

Take watchful thought when opting to auto-play the videos in your site. Depending on the situation, auto-playing a video can annoy your guest, which can end up in losing potential sales. Remember your guests might shop discretely—they might be in a calm bistro, a library, or on meal break at work.
