This adjustment ensures that videos, including those on YouTube, will start playing automatically when you visit the site.
With autoplay enabled, your YouTube viewing becomes more streamlined and engaging. This setting is ideal for users who prefer a hands-off approach, allowing for uninterrupted video playback as you browse through YouTube content.
