When trying to run a live video for display purposes using YouTube it times out overnight. Is there a code I can input into the URL that will allow the video to play continuously without stopping? Similar to having autoplay (?autoplay=1) in the URL?

  • Does it have to be in the URL? It's easy to embed the YouTube in a web page that automatically refreshes itself. E.g. Putting <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300"> into the <head> section would reload the page every 5 minutes. May 9 '21 at 13:03

As far as I know and also based on my experience there's no way to disable the timeout. Though I believe there's a difference between the device you're using, such as computer browser versus phone app.
