Getting a Non YouTube Video to Play Automatically...?


Hi I have two original videos in my Prezi that I’d like to just play automatically when zooming to that slide. If it can’t play automatically, I’d at least like for it to play on the page without it automatically going into full-screen mode. Any ideas on how to make this happen?


Hello @Irene_Atkins, currently it is only possible to play videos in full screen mode in Prezi, and you need to click to navigate through the presentation/start the videos. In case you’d like to autoplay the entire presentation, please consult this article tutorial.


Hi Sara, is it at least possible to have the video thumbnail image show? It displays as just a black video with a play button. At least a preview of what the video looks like would be helpful so the viewer would want to click on it.


Hello @Irene_Atkins, it is not possible to modify the thumbnail of videos unfortunately. I apologize for any inconvenience and will forward your request to our developers.
