Sharing and embedding videos

Video: Sharing and embedding videos

Now that we're getting more comfortable with the basics of social networking and the basics of online video platforms. I want to talk about different ways to share your video that you post on YouTube or Vimeo. I'm not going to execute each one of these things, I just want to go over the basic vocabulary and show you how it works. As you can see, I'm on a YouTube video page. I happen to be logged in, but to do what I show you in this movie you don't need to be logged in. You can share and embed videos even if you don't have an account on YouTube. On this video page, if I scroll down, you'll see that I have a Share button. That opens up a share section which gives me a number of ways to share my video. First this is a shortened link.

Now that we're getting more comfortable with the basics of social networking and the basics of online video platforms. I want to talk about different ways to share your video that you post on YouTube or Vimeo. I'm not going to execute each one of these things, I just want to go over the basic vocabulary and show you how it works. As you can see, I'm on a YouTube video page. I happen to be logged in, but to do what I show you in this movie you don't need to be logged in. You can share and embed videos even if you don't have an account on YouTube. On this video page, if I scroll down, you'll see that I have a Share button. That opens up a share section which gives me a number of ways to share my video. First this is a shortened link.

If I copy and send this to someone say in an email, they can click it and come right back to this page and see the video in exactly the way it's presented here. You can see that I also have social media buttons. This is an indication that YouTube can integrate with each one of these social networks. This is at the heart of what we're talking about here. And I get into all of the details on YouTube Essential Training. The next one is called embed. Now this may look a little complicated to you, if you've never coded for the web. But it's the key to placing YouTube videos on your own websites or blogs. It's called an embed code, and you copy and paste it into the website that you're making, that is the HTML code or the WordPress HTML code window. Don't worry, I go over all of this in YouTube Essential Training. I do want to show you briefly, what the result is. On this simple page here, I've embedded a Vimeo video, on my own page. You can see what that looks like.

I've controlled, all of the text on this page, and I can change the background or layout if I choose to. An I've now placed a Vimeo video Right on my page. I can do this with YouTube, or Vimeo, using what's called the embed code. I can email directly out of, YouTube, and send this video link to someone via email. I do need to be logged in for this option, or else YouTube will not let me send emails. Finally, hangouts are specific to Google Plus.

That's an integration of using video with Google Plus to hang out on video together, it's a little different than what we are talking about. If I switch over to Vimeo you will see that I have very similar choices, here we are in Vimeo and again I'm logged in but you can do a lot of this without being logged in. If I hit the Share button slightly different location very similar choices. A link, social network integration, send email directly out if Vimeo, and code to embed in a page.

Again, I get into each one of these in detail in Vimeo Essential Training. Embedding, emailing, links, and social media integration are the basic ways that we can share our video once it's been posted on YouTube or Vimeo. To go further in each one of these areas, look up the appropriate movie in the appropriate essential training course.
