How to embed Connect video in webpage without autoplay / autostart

I want to embed a Connect recording from our locally hosted Connect site on our webpages. We use Plone and I've manually added the code:

<p><iframe src="https://connect.le.ac.uk/p51ud1gxajs/" name="Demonstrating your impact with the h-index" width="800" height="600" align="left" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0"></iframe></p>

This appears to work in testing but the video starts playing when you load the webpage - which I do not want it to do.

How do I have the video embed but not play unless the user selects play?

Hi GrantDenkinson,

We expect a user to be ready to watch the video when he clicks on the link to view the video content. So we auto-play it.

Inside a meeting if we share this content, we expect the host to play it according to his preference, so we start it in a paused state.

Currently there isnt a way to start a video in paused state.

Thanks

Sameer Puri

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm sorry to hear Connect cannot even as an option do what I want it to do. Please could this option be added to a future release?

If I embed a video on a web page I pretty much never want it to play until the user chooses to do so, since there may be other options on the page or they may be doing something else while loading the page. I'd prefer this behaviour to be the default and if not I at least need it as an option if I am to embed videos on webpages.

I also prefer to use "they" or "the user" rather than "he" since not all of our users are male.
