How to embed YouTube videos in the Website Builder


Anyone familiar with embedding YouTube videos would know that YouTube provides a built-in code snippet you can copy and paste. But did you know that with the Website Builder, there is an easier and more precise way to do this – enabling a way to snap the video into exactly the right dimensions so your website looks pixel perfect?

It’s easy – all you have to do is follow these instructions:

  1. Log into the control panel and open the Website Builder
  2. Navigate to the page you want your video to appear
  3. In the toolbox on the left, click and drag the video component into your workspace
  4. The following screen should pop up – click on ‘Paste a link to a YouTube video’ and paste the link
  5. You can click and drag the video to move it, or use the handles to  resize the video as desired
  6. The properties tab on the left contains extra options you can select for your video, such as whether to display the title or to automatically start the video when a user reaches your page
  7. Save your website and publish using the buttons on the top left

And there you go, your video is now ready for primetime on your website!
