Video background (through Youtube) stopped autoplaying


Ok, This is wierd.

I have a landing page that uses about 3 youtube videos as background in different sections. Its been working fine for a while, but a few days ago the video just stopped working and all you see in the background is the thumbnail.

I checked everything i can think of, tried different URL variations (Youtube has a bunch for some reason), i tried adding the Autoplay=1 code - nothing works!

Anyone has any idea what wrong?

You can see the landing page at

Thank you!


Hi @omri_morel,

The videos play fine for me on macOS Safari 11.1 and Chrome.
