How Do I Autoplay Video in Canva?

Canva is a fantastic graphic design tool used by professionals and amateurs alike. It has a range of features that allow you to create stunning visual designs. One of its most useful features is the ability to autoplay video in Canva. This feature allows you to add a video to your design, and have it play automatically when the page is loaded, making it easy to showcase your video content.

To autoplay video in Canva, first upload your video file into the media library. Once uploaded, drag and drop the video from the library into your design canvas. When adding a video to your design, Canva will give you various options for customization such as size, position, and more. However, for autoplay functionality, you will need to select the “Autoplay” option at the bottom of the menu.

Once you’ve selected Autoplay, Canva will give you two further options – “Start Automatically” and “Loop Video”. Start Automatically will cause your video to begin playing as soon as it appears on screen; Loop Video will cause it to loop when finished playing once.

You can also customize other aspects of how your video plays in Canva such as audio volume or playback speed. To access these settings simply click on “More Options” next to the Autoplay option.


Autoplaying videos in Canva is a great way to showcase your content without having users manually press play each time they visit your page. To enable this feature simply upload your video into Canvas media library, drag and drop it onto your canvas and select Autoplay from the options menu. You can then customize further settings such as audio volume or playback speed by clicking More Options.
