Hi,

Here's how you add a YouTube video to your website:

First, get the URL for the YouTube video:

  1. Go to http://www.youtube.com.

  2. Load the page for the desired video.

  3. Copy the URL, either by copying the address that appears in the address bar of your browser, or by copying the address that appears in the video information box on the right, next to URL.


  4. If the address that appears in your browser's address bar is "http://www.youtube.com " or if you do not see the desired video playing on the YouTube page you are viewing, please click through to view the desired video. The URL needs to be for the video, not for the main YouTube page or a YouTube search results page.


Next, add the YouTube element to your website:

  1. Go to or sign in your website account.

  2. Click Websites Manager link in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




  3. Click Insert in the top toolbar. Then, select YouTube Video




  4. Once selected, enter the YouTube URL you copied into the YouTube Video Settings on the far right.


  5. Drag the YouTube box to the area you would like the video to play on your page.


  6. Save and Publish.


Hope that helps!
