Autoplay video

I want my video to autoplay on the email not to link out to Vimeo.

I added ?autoplay=1 and it's not working. Is there anything else that I need to do?

There isn't a way to auto-play videos within emails. We ask for additional comments and votes be left on the open idea for autoplaying videos in a campaign. Our Product team regularly reviews our Feedback boards more than our Get Help area. Though we do not have a time estimate of if a feature like this will be available in the product, any updates will be posted there, not on this post. Voting and commenting on that post allows you to be notified of replies.

 

For the time being however, video links can only redirect - whether through a video block (functions essentially the same as a thumbnail on YouTube or Vimeo), image, text, or a button.
