I am embedding a YouTube video in my website. Is it possible to make the clip start loading before the user presses play?

(I would not like the video to start playing automatically.)

<param name="autoplay" value="0"></param>

See the Google Code documentation for more information about customizing the YouTube player: http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/player_parameters.html

  • Would the snippet of code you showed here (a) cause the video to preload (b) not cause it to autoplay? Also, I read that doc before, but I didn't see anything there about preloading. Ram Rachum about 8 years ago
