#StackBounty: #jquery #fancybox #fancybox-3 Autoplay YouTube video (privacy-enhanced mode) in fancybox 3

Bounty: 50

It is possible to autoplay a regular YouTube video in fancybox by appending ?autoplay=1 to the video URL:

<a class="lightbox" href="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zRwBVYjUBOc?autoplay=1">video</a>

… and …

$(document).ready(function(){
    $("a.lightbox").fancybox();
});

Unfortunately this doesn’t work if the “privacy-enhanced mode” is enabled (youtube-nocookie.com):

<a class="lightbox" href="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/zRwBVYjUBOc?autoplay=1">privacy-enhanced mode video</a>

The option autoplay=1 is not supported on youtube-nocookie.com.

How can I still have the video automatically played in the lightbox with privacy-enhanced mode?
