Autoplay for Videos
Most software tools for creating and uploading videos to blogs or web have an autoplay option because it dramatically changes the experience of visiting the site, especially if the video has music or audio.

Amber's message below touches on this.... you can make an embedded Zenfolio video auto play by first uploading the video to your site. IMPORTANT: Make sure that your video is the only video or photo file in this special folder that you create. Once uploaded and finalized on your Zenfolio site, go to the slide show share section... select the way you want your embedded video to look and act... make sure to select auto-play during this process. Once complete look for the embed code and paste it in the HTML space that you are looking to play the video in. This worked great for me on my boudoir site... better than using YouTube because there are no ads or competing video suggestions... just pure, clear auto play video.

This seems like a GREAT suggestion!! I really would like to have the QT videos in my galleries autoplay when loaded into a page. Currently they only autoplay in a slideshow. Seems like an easy thing to implement.
Neilan - I managed to get my video to auto play from Zenfolio by inserting the video in the slideshow box ;) Maybe this will work for you?? Haven't tried it anywhere else yet...but gonna keep at it.
if you want to loop them change your html5 code to include &loop=1&playlist="your videos url digits not including www.youtube.com/"
Okay, since I'm less than a year old at Zenfolio I'm still figuring things out myself.
I agree with your points, didn't realize everyone already knew how to do this. :)
been able to do that from the beginning amber
we all know you can do that but
1 its hosted elsewhere
2 it contains you tube branding so its less professional
3 you cant control the quality of the video
Hey everybody....check this out! I just tried it on my Zenfolio site and you can auto play your YouTube videos....EEEK! I'm so excited now.
PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE!!!!!!!!
I was just searching for other hosting options because this is soon to be a bigger part of my business/brand! Autoplay would be a big improvement!
i agree 1000%
id like to have a video auto play as soon as visitors hit my home page
and id sooner it be hosted here rather than youtube
I have asked about this too. I signed up and assumed that they had this feature as all professional sites do. I just emailed them telling them that this is "MUST HAVE" feature.

I'd love that... I hate having YouTube placing ads on my site after the video plays.
