    I was wondering if there is a code that automatically mute a video on YouTube. Just like when you add &autoplay=1 to automatically play a video, i need a code that automatically mute a video ? :confused:

    Is that possible ? :eek:

    By the way
    Do you know when you embed a video from youtube to another website .... And when you add this code &autoplay=1 it automatically plays the video. I have a website, and i get about 2 thousand views a day, so i decided to embed a video on my website and get more views. The problem i don't want people to hear my video when it automatically plays , so how can i mute the sound?

    I need just a code? What can i do ?
    Is there any other way?

    Sorry, that was for firefox. I somehow haven't think about embedding.
    It seems like youtube embedding doesn't that feature. http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/player_parameters.html
    However if you really want to implement muting, install jwplayer it allows youtube embedding and also muting.
    You can test it first here http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player-setup-wizard?example=205
    I'm using it on my site and it is not that hard to install.

    UPD:
    Also check out this thread

    Thank you so much. It worked!!!
    But there was a little problem though. I actually don't own a website, but i wanted to add the code to my signature (On Different Forum ) ,so that when people view the thread my video plays automatically and i gain views. The problem some forums or maybe all disable java script, but i managed to play around. I just made my video to start playing from the last 2 seconds of my video.

    Example:

    Code:
    [flash1=http://www.youtube.com/v/YOUR_VIDEO?start=TIME_HERE&autoplay=1[/flash1]
    Thanks Again!
