Now if you are currently using Yahoo SiteBuilder to build your website then you will probably want to put a YouTube video on your website at some time. This why and how you can do it yourself. Video makes up almost 60% of the traffic found on there internet and is watched by 200 million Americans each month. This is huge! Why is video so popular? Video converts. People would rather watch a video then to read text. Pour a cup of coffee, sit in front of your computer and watch and listen. That is why your website should have video on it. This article will show you how to embed a YouTube video or any other video that gives you the option onto your new website in Yahoo Site Builder.
Step 1: Go to YouTube and find the video you want to embed. If its your own video make sure you upload it to YouTube first by creating an free account. On the page your video is displaying you will find a box that says “embed,” just below the videos description. Next to the word embed you will see the HTML code for that video. It looks like object width=”560″ height=”340″…. Click and copy the HTML code.
Step 2: Open up Yahoo SiteBuilder and insert an new HTML Box. You can go to insert in the top bar or right click and click insert HTML. Once you have inserted an HTML box double click on it and paste in your code. You should see the numbers in the code that gives you the width and height of your video. Write down the length and width if needed.
Step 3: Stretch the HTML box to be just a little bigger then the height and width of your video. Move the video to the place you want it on the page. Save, publish, and your done.
If the video isn’t showing up after you publish it may be a few things. It may be that you didn’t stretch the HTML box enough with your mouse or that you didn’t copy all the code from YouTube itself. I hope this article is helpful to you.
