I'd like to have a couple 5min videos play on my site, one after another so that the user loads the page: the video starts right away & the next one loads and plays right away, as well.

 

Is it possible to get this functionality with iWeb?

 

Thank you in advance for your time and help!

In case anyone else stumbles upon this post, out of interest: From the "YouTube Embeded Player Parameters" page: In short, you just append "&loop=1" to the end of the url & you get the desired feature (if the video is in a playlist, as mentioned).

 


loop
Values: 0 or 1. Default is 0. In the case of a single video player, a setting of 1 will cause the player to play the initial video again and again. In the case of a playlist player (or custom player), the player will play the entire playlist and then start again at the first video.

 

Note: This parameter has limited support in the AS3 player and in IFrame embeds, which could load either the AS3 or HTML5 player. Currently, the loopparameter only works in the AS3 player when used in conjunction with the playlist parameter. To loop a single video, set the loop parameter value to 1 and set the playlist parameter value to the same video ID already specified in the Player API URL:
http://www.youtube.com/v/VIDEO_ID?version=3&loop=1&playlist=VIDEO_ID

 

 

The page has a host of other embedding parameters that actually offers a great deal of control over the appearance of your video (not to mention a much easier means of getting subsequent video play).

 

Definitely worth checking out, no coding knowledge necessary - very straight forward. 

 

Cheers,
