SOLVE
New Contributor

Hi all,

 

I've uploaded and embedded a video file to my website but I want it to autoplay as someone opens the page. How do I go about doing this?

Hi @TokyoSupercars 

 

That native Insert Video functionality in Hubspot is powered by Vidyard in the backend. Here's an article describing the integration:https://knowledge.hubspot.com/articles/kcs_article/integrations/use-video-in-hubspot

 

You can get your video to autoplay but you need to to change the video's settings within Vidyard. To do that you are going to need to:

 

  • Create a Vidayed account at https://secure.vidyard.com/
  • Connect your Vidyard account to Hubspot: https://www.vidyard.com/integrations/hubspot/  -> click Get Started and connect to your portal
  • Log in to https://secure.vidyard.com/
  • You should see any videos that you already embedded in your Hubspot pages using the Insert->Video functionality. If you don't see it make sure you are viewing your Hubspot Group (look for change group)
  • Hover over the video, click settings, and toggle autoplay on

From your screenshot, it looks like you are going to Video settings. You need to go to Player settings

On the Players screen hover over your video, click settings, and then you should be able to see the autoplay option.

@JodieMul did you go the Players or Video screen?

Hi @TokyoSupercars 

 

Are you embedding videos using the Vidyard integration with Hubspot, or something else?

 

If it is Vidyard, this thread might help: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/Blog-Website-Page-Publishing/How-to-add-autoplay-to-vidyard-videos-...

Hi Matthew

 

I follwed your steps  and toggled auto play for all of our videos in vidyars but it didn't work. Hubspot then told me I need to pay for a Vidayrd account to get this functionality. Seems crazy with what we already pay for Hubspot. Am I doning something wrong/being told the wrong thing?

 

Thanks

Hi @JodieMul 

What level of Hubspot subscription do you have? Vidyard powers the native video integration for HubSpot Pro and Enterprise, in which case you shouldn't need a paid Vidyard account for the above to work.

@MatthewShepherd  thanks for getting back to me.

 

We have Marketing Hub and sales Professional. I have spoken to both hubspot and Vidyard who both said we would need a paid Vidyard account which I can not justify just to make videos auto play when we already pay a lot for our Hubspot suscription.

 

I have tried embedding a Vimeo video and it only plays automatically when the page is reloaded.

 

Any advice would be welcome

Hi @JodieMul 

I don't have a paid Vidyard account and this is working for me on Hubspot Marketing Pro. Take a look at my (messy) test page here: http://go.dotdynamic.ie/test

A few questions:

  • How are you embedding your video in Hubspot i.e. pasting embed code, using insert video in Hubspot editor, something else?
  • When you insert your videos in your Hubspot content are they showing up in your Vidyard account or are you adding them to Vidyard separately?

Hi Matthew

 

I'm trying to do the same thing. 

We're on HubSpot Marketing Pro and I did create a Vidyard account and integrate this, we are not paying for Vidyard separately though.

 

I do not see the feature you mention to turn on autoplay in Vidyard, see screen shot: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AD-GpGNVgK4ftKXvXcND2zT6rLGXtDR_/view?usp=sharing 

 

Any other solutions?

 

Thank you
