Hope you guys are still home, have not heard back for 36 hours from my queries...


The auto play feature does not seem to work in tubepress. I turned it on under the "player" tab, then "auto play",  but it does not start any video when the site loads. Also, if it will eventually work, how do I cause it to open one specific video that I have in mind - as opposed to randomly? If I cannot get it to work in the meantime I will put a separate video in my site apart from tubepress.

Hi Jim,


The "auto play" feature only really works for configurations that show a full video (not just thumbnails) when the page is initially loaded. In your case, you're using Fancybox to display the videos, and this configuration only shows a video after a thumbnail click. I believe the only configuration where auto play will work is the "normal" player location. Does that answer your question?


Sounds like the workaround would indeed be to just embed a specific YouTube video outside of TubePress.


Let us know what else we can do for you. Thanks!
