- Do not use the HTML Video element or “YouTube embedded” code, if you do that the video won’t be responsive on mobile/tablet devices. The embedded code has a fixed width dimension and it will break the responsive layout.
- Keep in mind that the AutoPlay feature works only when the Mute feature is also enabled, due to YouTube’s new API about autoplay. AutoPlay also won’t work on tablet/mobile devices because of the default mobile operating systems.
