Tutorial: Automatically start video with autoplay

Here's a fun little feature! If you want the video to automatically start playing as soon as the Nimbb Player appears, simply set the autoplay parameter.

Example

HTML code

<object id="nimbb" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="320" height="240" codebase= "http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/swflash.cab">
<param name="movie" value="https://player.nimbb.com/nimbb.swf?guid=XXXXXXXXXX&lang=en&autoplay=1" />
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
<embed name="nimbb" src="https://player.nimbb.com/nimbb.swf?guid=XXXXXXXXXX&lang=en&autoplay=1" width="320" height="240" allowScriptAccess="always" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
</embed>
</object>

By setting the value of autoplay to 1, the video start playing as soon as the Nimbb Player is loaded. Make sure to write the parameter name in lowercase.

Notice: using too much of this feature might annoy some of your visitors, so use it wisely!
