Depends on the video type. What video do you want to add?

It is possible to autoplay GIFs and some other vids with the webm method, basically the second method explained here.
Just some random table xD

It's not possible to utilize that method for YT vids unfortunately. You could upload the clip to GFYcat & then use the method though.

Hey, @ DoublefeedOP

The only known way to put youtube videos into guides is to use the embed feature e.g.
Code:
[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ari9gjeqPWo[/embed]

Unfortunately there is no way to make it autoplay, so readers will still have to click on it to watch it.

As for the Youtube Prime extension, there is a button within your guides Basic Setup tab that you can check if you want your youtube video at the top to autoplay, though this is a prime feature just to make that clear.
Thanks to Jovy for the sig!

Thank you very much @ Fruxo :) I wanted the code for embed and that seems to work just fine <3 Happy New Year!
