How to make embedded videos autoplay or play at a specific time

Make your video play right when you want it. ▶️

⚠️ Please note embedding Loom videos with Autoplay is not available at this time. This is because the majority of web browsers have policies and restrictions in place around  Autoplay which Loom cannot bypass. We are currently working on finding a solution here.

To make your embedded video autoplay or play at a specific time, you'll need to get our HTML embed code from the video's page. Click on the Share icon at the top of your video and choose the Embed tab. You'll also be prompted to select Responsive or Fixed Size. Once you've chosen your desired code format click Copy Code.

Once you do that, you can add the autoplay or specific playtime at the end of the video. 

For autoplay For playing at a specific time
You can add this URL argument to the end of the URL for our embed code: ?autoplay=1
