    Is there any way in the parameter or object items to tell a youtube
    video not to begin automatically?
    That is, the user must click the play button to start it.

    Something like autostart=0?

    I'm playing with an idea where I have six vids showing at one time and
    they all want to play at the same time. Which, of course, plays hell
    with the audio.

    In addition, autostarting of several videos is likely to make a page
    slow loading.

    I made a demo page which I posted here, perhaps in answer to one of
    your questions in the past. Yes, you can control autostarting, size,
    have a volume control, etc for a link to a YT video. If properly
    written, the code will work on most recent browsers including Firefox,
    IE, Opera, etc.

    See http://www.cwdjr.net/video4/testYT.html and view the source code.

    Strangely fascinating. Keep this as a memory for when the oil runs
    out...
