I am trying to publish a prezi to my company website. Whenever I have tried, the autoplay feature doesn't work. Could you please help me to determine exactly what steps are needed to publish a prezi with the autoplay setting of 4 seconds?

Thank you!

Hi there,
Auto-play enabled prezis still need one click from the user to start. More information on embedding is here:


Hope this helps,

Thank you Angelie! Unfortunately, I have read this same article without any luck. It doesn't appear as if the autoplay settings are retained when exporting the prezi. Even after clicking the play option, the 4 second autoplay doesn't run. Would it be possible for you to give me step-by-step instructions on exactly how to get the finished prezi from the Prezi website, with the auto play option, onto my own website?

Thanks again Angelie!

I have the same problem.
I really want the Prezi to automatically start when my web site loads. Short of that it should autostart when someone presses the play button.
Looks like the only way to autoplay is for the visitor to select autoplay from the menu. Nobody is going to go through that trouble.
That's really too bad. Prezi is a great product. But the ability to autoplay on a web site is really fundamental. I am surprised this hasn't been implemented.

I was having the exact same problem! They best thing I found was this site:
You play the prezi on fullscreen mode, and you stretch the screen recorder to cover what you want to record, be care ful to leave out the play button at the bottom of the fullscreen mode where you are clicking)
Then you start the recording, click through the prezi, leaving as much time between each click as you want, tehn press done and you can save the file as various different movie files like.avi.

It's great and free!

Then upload to your site as a movie, GoDaddy I know has an option to play any video automatically and on a loop.

I agree that getting the user to press play or find the autoplay feature is asking too much.

The only way I solved this issue to get auto start & auto play was to use the Prezi API by the Prezi Engineers.

It's a little harder than getting the embed code, or using an
