Adding a YouTube Video (snippets)

By Freeola Support on 3rd May, 2017 | 0 Comment(s)

You can add YouTube videos in 2 different ways, in this tutorial we will cover adding a snippet (this is ideal if you want to add your video to multiple pages).

 

If you would prefer to learn about adding and embedding media just once and on one page at a time, then take a look at the Adding Media to Your Pages tutorial.

 

Step 1: From the Main Menu select Custom Code & Snippets, from under the Website Tools heading.

Step 2: Click the Add New Snippet button. Choose a name for your snippet and enter it into the Snippet Name field.

Step 3: Open a new tab, and head to YouTube. Search for the video you want to use and select it. When you click through to the video, you should find that there are some options below the video title. Click the Share button.

Step 4: Click the Embed tab and copy the code. Then head back to InstantPro.

Step 5: Paste the code into the Snippets Content field, then press Save and Finish.

Step 6: You can now add your video to your chosen pages. You will need to find the page from the Page Manager and choose to edit it.

 

From the options on the left hand side, select Add Snippet, drag & drop the Snippet onto the page and place it where you would like your video to appear.

 

Double click inside of the snippet box and from the drop down, select your video. Once you are happy with the placement, press Finish.
