Grab the embed code from the YouTube video to be added to your page:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/evL5jaZx8vk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Add "?rel=0&autoplay=1" after the URL in the embed code src:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/evL5jaZx8vk?rel=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Since April 2018, Google made some changes to the Autoplay Policy. You not only need to add the autoplay=1 as a query param, but also add allow='autoplay' as an iframe's attribute
So while embed youtube video, you will have to do something like this:
<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID?autoplay=1" allow='autoplay'></iframe>

And there's no option to unmute from mobile when the mute code is added to the embed code.

Old thread but still relevant as I hit this issue today. If you set &mute=1 in your embed code, autoplay will work as expected.

Thanks @KKnowles! Your comment is what helped solve my issue.
The embed url that ended up working for me was src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/HCc0OUmmPd8?feature=oembed&autoplay=1&mute=1&cc_load_polic..." which you can on our Content Marketing page.

Only on desktop, but it's not working for me on mobile for some reason.

How does this work though when using the Video module? (not an embed code)

Ok - after some research and troubleshooting - I've discovered that Google has changed their autoplay policy in Chrome to "improve the user experience."
I don't like it. But at least it still autoplays in Firefox and Edge/IE.

This used to work beautifully but now it doesn't. Not on older landing pages or new one I make. Any ideas on what's wrong? Are there some new settings in Hubspot somewhere? I created a webpage on my website and used the same embed code and it worked perfectly. But on Hubspot landing pages it will not autoplay. Help is greatly appreciated!
