i.MX8M autostart application at boot

I have a DART-MX8M development kit based on the i.MX8M. In general I want to play on a loop a specific video, so when the dev kit is turned ON it redirects me to the cmd window where I type the command:

gplay-1.0  - -repeat 'name of video and file type' and it works fine. As an improvement to that, I would like to automatically play this video the moment I turn the dev kit ON (at boot) without having to type this command every time. I looked online for scripts that enable autostart of applications during boot, but they don't seem to work for GNU Linux. Would you be able to help?
