It would be great to have a embedded video autoplay only the first time a user visits, and on subsequent visits the user would have to click the play button

This would be a great feature. It is possible, using cookies.

We already provide autoplay option on our embed code but as for what's being described above, I think that will be very difficult to implement. And honestly I don't think a lot of our users will want such specific behavior.

i don't believe that. seems like a logical thing to ask for. having an "intro" video on a homepage that plays on first visit is a request i am getting from my end users.

I feel this is very necessary. Autoplaying a video on the first visit is good, but after that it serves no purpose to the same visitor. It becomes an annoying factor to most returning visitors. It also gives a false sense of tracking. That's my 2 cents :)

For now you could use the following code to set the cookie. Just replace where I have (put Vimeo id here), the size and any other options inside the embed code:

Hopefully this helps :)
