Learning to embed a Youtube video

 

 

 

Embedding a Youtube clip:

One of my aims today was to learn how to embed a Youtube video on my blog. It took me a while to figure it out because I didn’t realise that an embed code is very different from the link to share a youtube video. When you click on “Share” (under the Youtube clip) it gives you 3 options as seen below.

You need to click on “Embed” which will give a block of HTML (in other words a computer language) which creates the video object once it is embedded in the page. It needs to be obtained from a site already hosting the video, because the “embed code” points back to that site.

Once you have got the code, click “Add Media” to your post, then “Insert Embed Code”. Once that’s done you have successfully added a Youtube clip to your blog.
