Support » Plugin: Video Sidebar Widgets » Can't turn off autoplay

  • Resolved Doe3


    I’ve been using this plugin for about two years now and I noticed today, but I don’t know when the problem actually started, that the videos in my sidebar start playing automatically eventhough I have it set to ‘no’ in widget settings.
    Any idea why this is happening? It’s really annoying, so I had to disable it for now.

    Having the same problem any idea how to fix this?


    WordPress versions 3.5.0 and 3.5.1 are also affected not just WordPress 3.4.2 and earlier. The good news is that fix mentioned by “LoSan” works by manually adding in the “?autoplay=0” command. Thanks.

    Also, Vimeo and other embeds commands were not affected. Only Youtube videos. It is almost like the hackers are at work. The real question is why did this start happening today? It worked perfectly previously?

    Anyone have an idea as to why today?

    Best Regards,

    Ya actualice a 5.4 y no me funciona en mi pag sigue la reproduccion automatica, con la actulizacion en la parte de widget y ano se reproduce solo

    Commented before about this auto-play issue. Now that I updated the videos don’t auto-play in the widget anymore, but still auto-play in the site. This plugin has been flawless for a long time, it’s awesome thanks.
    I have rebooted on and off the “yes – No” button still no go. here is the site

    Hi Everybody,

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I had adopted loSan and qcdar’s solution in the plugin.
    Thanks guys!

    Please update to version 5.5
    Please use it the “old” way, video ids only.
    Clear browser cache before revisiting site.
    Clear your cache plugin’s cache if there is any installed.

    Please let me know if there is anymore issue.

    I visited your website and saw that you used w3 total cache.
    Please clear your plugin cache after you updated to version 5.5
