After April 2018, Google has updated its policy to facilitate user. As the users complained for autoplay video and the sound or music within video were annoying for them. So, Google has restricted the auto play option in by default Embed code of video. So, if you get an Embed code and add that iframe within your page, then autoplay does not work.

You need to add ?autoplay=1&mute=1&enablejsapi=1 at the end of source (src) link of your youtube video. Following is example:

`<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/WtOOnpX2ly0?autoplay=1&mute=1&enablejsapi=1” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen></iframe>

I have added the additional code in Red color. If you will add embed code by updating like this, your video will autoplay on the page where you will embed it.
