    How do I get my Vimeo video to auto START on the webpage?

    Ive uploaded my video (just small 7 second animation) into a Video box of a template/layout.  Ive now inserted the video. Its hosted on Vimeo, which is connected to my GoDaddy account. BUT - when the video appears, it has the PLAY button that needs to be clicked. I don't want my site visitor to click it, I just want it to start automatically.  Is there a way to do this please?
