How to Autoplay YouTube Videos on Myspace Profile

By Sidharth | Google

How can I play music videos on my Myspace profile? Where should I embed the YouTube video code, so that whenever someone visits my page on Myspace they will be able to hear the songs?

Here is a simple way to run YouTube videos start automatically — to autplay YouTube videos, that is. YouTube has officially mentioned that inserting the word “autoplay” in the embed code will make the video run automatically, but this doesn’t seem to work on Myspace. What Google has suggested works only on blogs and websites. So what can you do?

Here is the video from a YouTube user who has clearly explained on how to make autoplay videos and embed them into social networking sites like Myspace :

Update: YouTube video removed. Please follow the text version below in order to embed videos.

Playing YouTube videos Automatically on Myspace

Go to YouTube and look for the video you want to embed. Hit the “share” button, then “embed.” This will generate a few lines of code which you can copy  and paste it into Wordpad or notepad. Now we will tweak this code and add “autoplay” inbetween “rel” and “=1”

Paste the new autoplay video code anywhere in your Myspace profile or any website and you are done! Unfortunately Orkut.com and Facebook doesn’t support video autoplay.

Let’s take an example by copying the embed code of a YouTube video.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/iDFMH6ztBx8&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/iDFMH6ztBx8&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

If you compare the video and the above code then you will see the word “rel” is missing (Instead we have “fs”) — replace “fs” by “rel” and make sure “&” is appended correctly. And the new autoplay enabled code is this:

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/iDFMH6ztBx8&hl=en&rel&autoplay=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

I have added the code on Myspace profile and it works perfectly!
