Hi,

We have a Youtube video that works as we want it to in most browsers. NOT in Safari.

Here is the Youtube code:

<object width="800" height="450">
  <param name="movie"
         value="https://www.youtube.com/v/CmJl9WGtNtY?version=3&autoplay=1&controls=0&showinfo=0"></param>
  <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param>
  <embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/CmJl9WGtNtY?version=3&autoplay=1&controls=0&showinfo=0"
         type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
         allowscriptaccess="always"
         width="800" height="450"></embed>
</object>

Note the use of the parameters after the youtube url. autoplay=1, controls=0. These are supposed to make it autoplay & suppress controls. This all works in the other browsers (FF, IE) but NOT in Safari.

Why?

To all,

It is Safari on the iPad. I have not tried other YouTube viseos.

Please try to play other video from youtube and see if the issue exists with that also. Then first you should fix that.
