There has been a lot of confusion over how to auto start YouTube embedded videos. I do not have to tell you that most of them do not work. YouTube is always upgrading there system so these things can happen. I am going to provide you with the proper code so that you can auto start your YouTube embedded videos. All you have to do is append the follow code to the video URL and it should auto start, ?autoplay=1.
Here is standard YouTube embedded code:

And here is the same Youtube code with the ?autoplay=1 syntax

Copy and paste both of the Youtube embedded videos on your blog to see how it works.
