How to Embed Videos in Plone

Want a video on your website? Read this how-to and learn the basics of embedding video.

YouTube, Vimeo, and other multimedia sites often provide the HTML code necessary to embed a video on your own website. Here's an example of where to find that code on YouTube:

Copy all the code in the Embed box. The URL box will only give you a link to the YouTube page where the video resides, not the code necessary to add it to your website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, go to the page on your Plone site where you want the video to appear. Click the Edit tab and then click the HTML icon to switch to HTML mode. Now paste the code. If you already have content on the page, you may need to know a thing or two about HTML to get it in the right place. If you don't know HTML very well, start with a blank page to insert your video on.

If you've copied the code correctly, it should look something like this:

<object width="425" height="350">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ydLiasdJeoo">
</param><param name="wmode" value="transparent">
</param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ydLiasdJeoo" width="425" height="350">
</embed></object>

 

Now Save the page you are working on and the video should be there!
