Autoplay on Youtube or Youtube autoplay is a setting in Youtube that instructs Youtube to either automatically play the next available relevant video.

Autoplay is an abbreviation for automatic play. It means to play the next content immediately after a particular one is done.

The way the autoplay is set also has the power to instruct Youtube to avoid playing any other video except you tap the video to play by yourself.

How to turn/embed Youtube autoplay

Youtube autoplay is a feature that is super cool and gives you more freedom to use your channel the way you want.

It also gives you more viewing pleasure as you are allowed to watch more videos recommended by Youtube.

Interestingly, the Youtube autoplay allows you to continuously watch different videos without touching your device.

How to turn on/off Youtube autoplay from your phone

1. Choose your preferred channel: you will need to choose the channel you want to set autoplay for.

This usually happens especially if you have more than one youtube channel.

2. Select setting: Tap on the profile of your channel and select the “Settings” option.

3. Find Autoplay option: Scroll down to find “autoplay“. When you have found it, click on it.

Toggle it on if you want videos to play automatically or toggle it off if you want videos to stop playing automatically.

For better understanding, take a look at the video below on how to set Youtube autoplay.

With this done, you can add an autoplay feature (which already exists anyway) to your channel.

Why is my Youtube autoplay not working?

I have come across many questions on so many platforms on why Youtube autoplay stopped working.

Some say that even when it is turned off, it automatically turns itself back on.

Some also say that when they turn it on, it automatically turns itself off.


“What could be the reason why such a thing is happening?” is a question these people have never stopped to ask.

I have personally come across this kind of problem before and how I was able to solve it was by updating my app/browser.

So if you are using a Youtube application to watch your videos and you are having such problems, try as much as possible to update it.

It could be a result of the outdated Youtube application you are using that is causing such a problem.

It is a bug that might have been corrected in the next update.

So try your best to update your Youtube application and see what happens next.

The same is also applicable when watching Youtube videos with browsers.

If your Youtube autoplay is not working properly, try also to update your browser to the latest version.

Outdated browsers also cause such problems and these problems can only be resolved when you update the browser.

How to embed videos/Playlist to your website

How to make the embedded video play automatically

To make an embedded video autoplay, all you have to do is to add “&autoplay=1” to the video’s embed code right after the video ID (the series of letters that follows “embed/”).

It is also important to inform you that videos that are set to play automatically do not increase your Youtube video views.

Example of how to make embedded video autoplay:
