How to embed a YouTube Video - It's easy, quick and uncomplicated

Good image films and videos have become an integral part of websites. Many visitors prefer to watch videos rather than read long texts. Moving images are a great way to visually enhance the website, improve the visitor experience, achieve better search engine rankings and ultimately also have a positive impact on the conversion rate.

HOW DO I INCLUDE A YOUTUBE VIDEO ON MY WEBSITE?

Embed with Youtube

Youtube provides extensive tools for video integration on websites. This is done using an embed code provided by Youtube. The advantage over the integration of videos via your own host is that videos can be played well if the data line is bad, since YouTube compresses the data accordingly and buffers it optimally. The most frequently requested undesired effect when embedding YouTube videos on corporate websites is the video recommendation at the end of the embedded clip. In the worst case scenario, the video of competitors appears here, because the foreign content appears to be thematically appropriate. But there is also a remedy for this: With a simple additional code snippet, this problem can be quickly remedied.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE EMBED CODE ON YOUTUBE?

The embedding code of the YouTube video can be found directly in the video. The Embed iframe code appears over the tab "Share" and then "Embed". Youtube offers the possibility to make some settings directly by clicking while creating the iframe code:

  • Select the display size of the embedded video (width / height)
  • Disable suggested videos after the video ends
  • Hide play controls, video titles, and player actions
These options can of course also be changed, supplemented or deleted manually in the code. The changes can be viewed and tested directly in the preview mode.
