I have a youtube video link on my site. It works fine. However, I would like it to open automatically rather than having visitors to the site click to start it.

How do I do this, please?

After you have the video on your page, In BV, right click on the Flash Player and choose properties. You will probably get one long line of code. Click someone in that line of code to make it not hightlighted - be careful not to delete any of the code.
You will see something like this minus the words in RED. They must be added:

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/QFxEfPh0p7s&hl=en"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/QFxEfPh0p7s&hl=en&autoplay=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

The letters in BLUE are the unique video info and will be different for your video - They should be - that's okay. If you will add the red words in that exact spot, I believe your video will begin playing one second after the page opens.
