Youtube is a fantastic tool for sharing videos. They offer a solid service free of charge. Their servers are optimized for hosting video. You can expect better performance when streaming video using YouTube compared with hosting your own video. YouTube also makes it easy to share your videos. Under each video they provide HTML code you can use on your site. This makes displaying your videos effortless. If you missed our previous article, please see the Embedding a Video Directly into the Webpage tutorial.

In this tutorial, we'll show you how to embed a YouTube video. The video we will use is one of our InMotion Hosting Support Videos, Welcome to InMotion Hosting!

Once you have found the video page. Click on share, which is right under the actual video. You will see a panel slide open and then click "embed". You will see some highlighted code appear. You will need to copy the code. This is the code for our video we linked to.

This is the code you will need to place in your web page to display the video. Once the code has been inserted into your website your visitors will have the oppurtunity to watch the video right there on your webpage. For more information on this course please visit Adding Videos to a Website.
