Web Object Not Loading Automatically

I'm using web objects to open videos on YouTube.  I have each web object set to load automatically but they don't. When the web object opens I must click the video to play. I want the video to play when the user clicks the "NEXT" button on the previous slide. I have the "Load web object automatically" checked in the Edit Web Object dialog box and Load Automatically selected in the Web Object Options menu. 

What am I doing wrong?

Hello Marty,

Using the Load automatically will only allow the video to load without being clicked. It will still have to be clicked to play.

When you use the option to add a video from website, using the embed code, you will have an option to start the video automatically or wait until learners click it. 

To see the different options and benefits of each click here.

I still don't think I'm getting the HD quality video. Below is the embed code I'm using which includes the VQ=HD720 added. Am I missing something or is the code not correct?
