Embedding a Youtube video in MoodleWritten by James Richardson
There are many instances that require a Youtube video to be added to your Moodle website. Moodle has the HTML feature that allows different HTML scripts to be placed on the site. This is where a Youtube video can be inserted. This article will explain how to insert an Youtube video in the Moodle 2.3 Frontpage.
Inserting a Youtube video
- Log into the Moodle Dashboard
Important! Keep in mind that Editing must be turned on in the Settings section in order to edit any of these options.
- In this tutorial, we will insert a Youtube video on the FrontPage. Click the Edit icon.
- Next, Click the HTML icon in the WYSIWYG editor.
- Next, paste the Youtube code into the code. In this example, the following code is being used.
<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fvtNh3-UFeA" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" width="560"></iframe>
Important! If the Youtube video is connecting to Youtube with http://, the box will display black. To make the box show the video, use https:// in the url of the iframe code.
Click Save Changes.
