Iframe nest video to provide autoplay


Good afternoon,

I am having an issue with Nest Camera. I am currently using embedded iframe to get the content of the video stream with these attributes

id=’…’ allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen frameborder=‘0’ width=‘720’ height=‘405’ src=‘https://video.nest.com/embedded/live/url

I really liked it because the video was auto-playing by default until few days ago. Then something changed and now we need to press play manually to have it working.

I really need the possibility to autoplay, could you please help me? I have also tried to append ?autoplay to the url but that doesn’t work.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:


Embed stream + autoplay = not working

I am using a nest camera stream embedded in an iframe on my smart mirror and have the exact same problem…

the ?autoplay command doesn’t make a difference either when in an iframe

however the ?autoplay command does work when using the camera stream not in an iframe

Any help appreciated also!!


Maybe this is related to the sound being enabled?

Enable no-audio in iFrame for mobile autoplay


Hello, is there any progress since the last time? It’s making the embedded videos kind of useless + the modal window which you click on for more info and the whole iframe is blank after.


Probably related to this:


The web team is aware of the issue and plans to fix, but I don’t know when.
