How to Embed (Add) a Youtube video

In this tutorial, we'll show you how to Add (embed) a YouTube video. The video we will use is from our InMotion Hosting Youtube Channel. 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 the HTML code you can use on your site. This makes displaying your videos effortless. This article is part of our full class on Adding Videos to a Website.

Adding a Youtube Video

  1. Find the youtube video you want to add to your web page. (In this guide I am using this video on How to Manage Files in FileZilla)
  2. Below the video click the Share, then Embed link.

  3. You will then see the provided Embed code, copy it for the next step.
    Adding Youtube video to HTML site
  4. Paste the code into the HTML of your site. Keep in mind if you are using a PHP powered CMS (such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.), you will most likely have to add the code from the Dashboard. Save your changes, then you should see the video embedded on your site. You may have to clear your Browser cache before the changes show.

Congratulations, now you know how to add a youtube video to a web page!
