Getting Started: Embedding videos

To embed a video, just copy the code from the "Embed" box—you can find it in the "About This Video" box when you're watching the video. Once you've copied the code, just paste it into your website or blog to embed it.

We now offer the ability to customize embedded players! For more information, please visit our Help Center section on Custom Players.

Also, please note that if you don't want one of your videos to be embedded on other websites, you can disable that feature by following the steps below:

  1. Within your account, click the "My Uploaded Videos" link (
  2. Click the "Edit Video Info" button to the right of the video in question.
  3. Under "Sharing Options," click the button next to "No, external sites may NOT embed and play this video."
