Embedding YouTube Videos on Your Web Page

There are a few options you select on your YouTube video when uploading.

Embedding

The first option is whether or not you want to enable embedding. If you choose to enable it, that means anyone can embed the video on  their website. This means others can possibly pass off your content as your own. But if people click to view it on YouTube they will realize it belongs to you.

That said, the benefits generally outweigh the risk. If the site with the embedded video gets a lot of traffic, that will result in increased view counts on your video, which increase the likelihood of more people seeing your video.  Think about those videos that are passed around on Facebook and how many views some of them have.  We could all use numbers like that!

Since others embedding your video will generally not hurt you in any way, it’s usually a good idea to enable embedding.

To Enable Embedding

Begin to Upload your video

Select Advanced Settings

Allow Embedding

Make sure there is a checkmark in front of  Allow Embedding

When your video is published, you and others can embed it on web pages.   You can find the embed code when you have selected the video.  It is under the Share button.   Select Embed.

embed

You just copy the code Youtube provides and paste it into the text area of your web page.  This works with any video when the creator allows embedding.
