How to add a YouTube or Vimeo Video onto a web page

You Tube and Vimeo are the 2 largest video sharing sites out there. If you have a Google account then by default you also have a You Tube account so you can start uploading and sharing your videos straight away.

Luckily it is also very easy to place You Tube videos onto your website - here's how:

  1. Go to You Tube and find the video you wish to place on your page e.g.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K_EOSmqXt8
  2. Below the video is the Share options - see image
  3. Copy the Iframe Code

This is the share code below the video in YouTube


Next login to your website...

  1. Go to the page / article where you wish the video to show up
  2. Click the "Show / Hide" Link or  "Toggle Editor" this shows the "HTML Code View" of the article 
  3. Paste (CTRL + V) or Right Click > Paste the iframe code into the page
  4. Save the article and admire your work!

This is your Article Editor once logged in to  your site



The Video will then appear like this!
