How to Embed Video

In the edit space, use the following code to call a video:

  • {{#ev:service|id}} -or-
  • {{#ev:service|id|width}}

Where:

  • service is the name of a video sharing service.
  • id is the id of the video to include
  • width (optional) is the width in pixels of the viewing area (height will be determined automatically)

For example, to include the famous "evolution of dance" YouTube video, you'd enter:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg}}

And if you wanted scaled down to thumbnail size, you could use:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg|100}}

Make a Thumbnail

You can save space on a page and make formatting easier by creating video thumbnails. Only available for YouTube video.

Merely paste the following into an edit window:

{{Youtube Thumb|YoutubeId}}

Where "YoutubeId" is the ID YouTube has assigned to the video you wish to display.
