How to Add a YouTube Video to Your Website

Build your website -> Website Graphics

Embedding a video onto a web page becomes as easy as cutting and pasting. When you visit YouTube, you are presented with a video box on the page. You can watch the video directly on the page, or the Flash player allows you to view the video full screen, just by clicking a button on the player.

Cost to add YouTube video
How much does it cost you to add a video from YouTube to your site? Nothing as in zilch, zero. They - YouTube is owned by Google - provide the service, and they also provide the bandwidth, so the video is hosted on their servers and uses their bandwidth! How can you beat a deal like that!

How do you go about it?
When you locate a video you would like to add to your page on YouTube, look to the top right (usually in two small form fields) on the page. One form field is labeled URL, which is the address of that page itself. The other is labeled Embed. By simply clicking your mouse within that field, all the text in that field is highlighted. You then right mouse click in that field, and select Copy from the drop down menu of your browser that will appear when you right click in the field.

Some of my favorite tutorials are done by Jimmy Ruska using YouTube videos. Here is one where he explains "Basic HTML and CSS Tutorial. Howto make website from scratch".

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Then, open the source code of your web page, and using a tool such as Free BlueVoda Website Builder, paste it into your page - either right click again where you want it, and select Paste, or place the mouse cursor where you want it, and hit Control and V on your keyboard at the same time. The embed code will be then deposited into your web page. Save the page, upload it to your web server using an FTP client, and view it in your browser!

Using a facility in Free BlueVoda Website Builder called HTML - it creates a box when clicked to open it up and then you can paste your code in it. Save it.
