did you try to use the 'autoplay' parameter which is provided by HTML5? http://docs.afterglowplayer.com/docs/html5-video-parameters

Is there anyway to automatically play video on page load?
Yes, I've got that parameter set and it auto plays once the click event happens. I'd like the lightbox to automatically load when visiting my site without having to click a link to initiate it. Is this possible with the afterglow lightbox?
