I am trying to setup a slideshow showing a youthbe video autoplayed at the beginning and then slideshow images. I have started by playing around with

A few questions issues that hopefully you can help me with:

1) I can't seemed to figure out how to autplay the first vide.
2) If I play the first video and then jump to the second video, I still hear the first video play. What do we need to do to have it stop when the second video or image is loaded?

    You can't autoplay videos automatically. To do this you'll have to call playVideo() public method after slider initialization.

    What browser are you using? Do you have same issue with playing videos on examples online?

    Do you have an example of autoplay working with your software? I am using IE9. Although it should work with any browser. I have seen video autoplay before on my briowser, just not with Royalslider.

    Have you added play video public method after initialization? You may even delay it.

    Like this

        setTimeout(function() {
        }, 200);

    I have implemented this method to the code and now I get a very small box playing the vid on top of the original one.
    Please take a look:
