    Thank you for contacting us.

    I opened your form from the URL you have provided. I could watch the Youtube video for 56 seconds. For further inspections, I cloned your form into my account and tested on my side. I could not replicate the same issue. 

    Did you embed your form into a website? If this is the case, please make sure that you have chosen iFrame as the embed option. Please have a look at the user guide below.


    If I did misunderstand your problem, could you please explain the issue in detail, e.g. in which browser you are having these problems, etc.?

    Waiting for your response.

    Thank you.

    I cloned your form and I was able to watch the youtube video from 0 t0 56 seconds. However it does not autoplay.


     I noticed that you are using the Youtube widget and this widget do not have an option to autoplay. The possible workaround is to use the  free text HTML from the basic fields and add the youtube iFrame code:

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/v/WQUFZxsjDQ0&start=00&end=55?rel=0&autoplay=1" frameborder="0"></iframe>


    Hope this helps.

    If you need further assistance, do let  us know.
