Youtube Clip in Storyline

Nov 13, 2012

I folks

I have a module with a number of Youtube and Vimeo clips embedded throughout. All the Vimeo clips work fine but only have of the YouTube clips work fine.

What I mean is that I've set the video clip options to "Play Video: When clicked" but half of the YouTube videos start playing on their own.

Thoughts?!?! Should I try re-adding the videos?

Hi Z!

There are two different ways to insert a Youtube video into Storyline. Are you inserting as a video or as a web object?

You might want to try re-adding the videos as a web objects, if you haven't already. Then you can set the auto play options.

Here's a link to a tutorial on this topic.

Here's some information on the auto play feature for a web object:


The autoplay parameter determines whether the video will automatically play when the user reaches the slide that contains the YouTube Web Object or whether the user must click on the video to start playing it. The autoplay parameter accepts the following values:

  • 0 means that you do NOT want the video to autoplay (default)
  • 1 means that you want the video to autoplay

Let us know if you need any other information!

Hi Daniel,

If I'm reading your question correctly, check out the attached (you'll have to publish it of course to get it to work)

It's a 2:08 video that I set to start at 16 seconds and end at 40 seconds

It's a really cute dog video (but I'm biased) so you might actually want to watch the whole thing!
