YouTube videos can be embedded in the CMS as either its own content block or within existing content.
In either case, the video must first available on a USM's official YouTube account.
Sample Embedded Video Content:
Create new content block/page - (back to top)
Click the Create Embedded Video (YouTube) link on the Admin Tools menu to bring up the following options on the Embedded Video edit screen:
Embed within existing content - (back to top)
Pasting the video URL into the body of a Text Editor entry of most of the other content types will automatically embed the video at that point in the content, with a preview image of the video, ready to play.
|This is not a link|
Paste ONLY the text of the URL into the desired location. Using the External Links functionality will create a standard text link to the video on YouTube, and will not show a preview of the video.
Get video URL - (back to top)
There are 2 ways to get a video URL:
Hide 'related videos' from appearing at end of play- (back to top)
After navigating to the desired video on YouTube:
- Click 'Share'
- Click 'Embed'
- Make sure 'Show suggested videos when the video finishes' is unchecked
(this adds the parameter "?rel=0" that tells the player NOT to show related videos)
- Copy the highlighted text
- Paste the text into Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac)
Remove everything except the URL.
Of the following original embed text below, we want only what is bolded here:
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
The URL is different from both the short version in the Share field ("http://youtu.be/McVTEA2M4ss") and the main browser URL ("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McVTEA2M4ss"). The crucial item for hiding related videos is the "?rel=0" parameter, but simply adding this parameter to the end of the other URLs will not produce the proper result. You must use the URL containing the word "embed", along with the "?rel=0" parameter
- Copy the remaining URL and paste it into the YouTube URL field
- Proceed as normally, whether creating a new content block/page or embedding within existing content
