How do I add a YouTube video to my Web page or blog?
I keep finding these great videos on YouTube and want to include some of them in my Typepad blog but I have no idea how to do that. I tried dragging and dropping while I was composing an entry, but was totally unsurprised when it didn't work either. Can it be done?
Ah yes, the astonishingly popular site
YouTube. Turns out that it's pretty darn easy to find a video on YouTube and then include it in your blog entry or on your Web page.
I dug around and found an interesting little video showing the globe sculpture on the grounds of the Vatican Museum. Here's a link:
Globe at Vatican Museum.
When you go there to check it out, notice the navigational elements on the right side of the video clip itself, in the "About This Video" box. It looks like this:
You can see the box you need, it's labeled "Embed" and the code, if you were to unwrap it all, would look like this:
<object width="425" height="350">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HvHOCqbA6rE"> </param> <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> </param> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/HvHOCqbA6rE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"> </embed> </object>
When I actually copy and paste it here, you'll see, the video just shows up:
Cool, eh? That'll answer your question and also point out how many people are doing video blogging (aka "vlogging").

How do I back up my Movable Type weblog?

I try doing that with my moveable type blog, and it still doesn't work. It is very frustrating. Is it me?
I am also trying to include my Youtube Videos to my webpages which I am doing. Just the different thing is that I wish to upload videos from my website to the YouTube server
and have those videos played back from my web site. It needs to be done seamlessly
without again having to register(I am already registered on YT) on YouTube or have the uploaded videos shown on or accesible
by the public on YouTube. I just wish to use the YouTube technology and server so I
don't have to reinvent the capability to adjust videos for size, length and resolution to
keep memory down.
Just wonder if this could possible. Could anybody help me with any idea /solution. Thanks in advance!
can i use youtube window in my forum page?can the readers of my message see the video?how can i do this.thank you very much..

I just started to design my first website.
I embedded a video in 30 secondes with Sitespinner.
How do I enlarge the video size in Office live.I am trying different ways.. None of them r working..
I would like to add video to my websites and blog but when I add the embedded info as per your instructions above via cut n paste ... nothing happens. In Dreamweaver do I have to add the embed code via Add > HTML > Script ? Or, is there some other way I am missing. I am a novice. Thank you for your additional instructions. Deidre
I just found out about your site, thanks and keep helping us(newies).
Hey, thanks man... It's just now when I embed the vid into my page, the video wont play.
It appears, but when I play it, it goes right to replay as if the video was over, yet it never even started. :-\
Am trying to psot a You Tube video on my TypePad blog. Did what you say above, copied coding in 'embeded' and pasted in my post, but it only shows the coding and not the video. Will the video come up when I've completed and saved the post, or should it show already before saving?
Thanks for a fast, precise and real-world set of instructions to run youtube videos on my website.
Took a minute or less.
QUESTION: when the youtube video ends, how do I remove the image from the web page?

I've been trying to add my videos to UTUBE's
main page or even the Channel main page.
Could you help me?
Could u teach me how to convert my video format from real player to any that later I can upload to youtube,because every video that I have in my pc have been download from the realplayer program that let u download from website,and when i upload to youtube it tells me that this format of video is no support from youtube
i want to add my vidio and pic in youtube what can i do
Remeber guy's not all blog site's support this. As for *.HTML you will need to use a .Html code editing tool.
Dreamweaver is a very powerfull yet simple tool to use. It has it own FTP system witch can be very helpful with ever growing site's.
Keep on blogging!

i need to add my own video.but i don't know how to do it,,,please,can't you help me?
I usually hate to say this kind of thing BUT: Adding a youtube video to your website or blog is as simple as copy and paste. If you cannot do this simple thing then go back to basics and start learning to use your computer, because what you do to add youtube videos to your website/blog is the absolute basic fundamentals of using a computer, seriously people, 99% of the questions asked here are pathetically rudimentary and a solution can easily be found by just doing it your self. So stop posting your stupid questions and just give it a go, 5 minutes of your precious life isn't going to hurt just to figure these things out.
I know this sounds mean, but honesty is best, and I HONESTLY feel that if people don't start doing things for themselves, simple things like this then the world is as good as doomed. Seriously.

This is a really great idea and good information Adding a you tube video to the website it help on line video watch visitors
please add in youtube my vedo
Can the video I upload in my you tube account be viewed by others?
few steps i know
Go to the YouTube home page (see the Resources section below).
Look through the database of videos and locate the content you wish to add. You can browse by content title or type, or view the featured videos. Click on the 'History' link on the home page if you want to quickly access videos you've recently viewed.
Copy the entire video URL from the address bar.
Find the 'About This Video' section.
Copy the code from the 'Embed' box for the selected video.
Log in to your MySpace profile from the MySpace home page.
Click on 'Edit Profile'.
Paste the video code into the section of your profile you want the video to appear in.
Click 'Save Changes.'
While it is easy (and fun) to embed the YouTube video on your webpage, you should aware Youtube is now a Google company, and they have full rights to display ads within their video. Your visitors might see your competitor's ads, videos after they view the video on your website. If your website is a personal website, I guess this won't really matter.
