In our site, we have a button that opens the video player from Vimeo,
we have tried using the instructions here and added autoplay=1 to the embedded URL:
Go to the video you'd like to embed and click the "Share" button. Then click the "+ Customize embed options" link that appears below the video preview and check the boxes to either loop the video, autoplay, or both.

later, we found that instead of autoplaying when we click on the button, it will autoplay when the page is loading (but only the audio)
any hints?

That's what autoplay means - it starts playing as soon as the page is loaded. If you don't want it to do that, unselect that option and it will play when you click the play button instead.

Nevermind. WE added javascript on our video button in order to have it autoplay when it is pressed, not on load of the site.
I dont think you understood the question but someone else from Vimeo helped us.

Okay, sounds good. Let us know if you continue to have trouble with this. PRO

Hi, any chance can you share that javascript? I have the same requirement - to autoplay when the button on the page in which the video is embedded is clicked, and not when the page is loaded. Thanks! --John
