Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Add a YouTube video to the library, part of Business Apps for SharePoint Monthly.
- [Instructor] What if your organization has already uploaded some of your videos for example to YouTube? How would we connect to those? Well, in much the same way, I can choose new video for example or upload and in either case provide code to embed a video from the web. Name of our video. Well, the video I'm going to go get is KinetEco Orientation.
And now I need the video embed code so I'm going to go back to the KinetEco Orientation that David created. I'm going to choose share. I'm going to choose embed and this is the embed code. Now I have options about how I might want to embed this, but if I just click somewhere here and hold Control and hit A to be able to copy all of this, then I can paste that code here and it will begin and end with the tags for an IFrame.
This is the default settings, a width of 560, a height of 315, and so on. I can preview this if I wish. Not a bad idea. Great, this is what it's going to look like and I'm going to click OK. Most of the settings that I might wish to change about this I would be changing in the embed code in YouTube. But I can modify the thumbnail here.
Notice that I have information automatically being filled in if I wanted to enter people's names, if I wanted to modify the description I could, but this is the video that I want. And even though this video lives on YouTube, I still get a landing page. I have the ability to upload related documents. I have the ability to manage this video in the same way that I might manage other videos. And most important for me is that my users can search for this video here in my asset library.
I can make these assets, even though stored in disparate locations, easier to find and therefore easier to use by creating an asset library.
