HTMLHelp Forums _ Graphics, Flash and Multimedia _ Video Auto Playing

I have a video embedded in the sidebar of my website. I need to set it so that it doesn't play until the site visitor starts it. Currently it starts up every time you go from one page to another (this is a WordPress site). Here's the code I'm currently using

<embed src="http://....FinalWelcomeVideo.mp4" autoplay="false" autostart="false" autoplay="0"
autostart="0" height="300" width="325" />

Nothing I'm doing is preventing the video from launching once the the page is loaded. I running in Chrome, and a smattering of research indicated that there's an issue with Chrome and autoplay now?

Up until today, this video was working as a straight WordPress embedded object (i.e., [video ="xxx" ][/video] The WordPress video code died, so I went to embedding with HTML, and now I can't get the video to remain silent until selected.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
