Q: I’m trying to embed a video in blogger that i’ve previously upload to my youtube account. Having trouble finding the html code in youtube to add to blogger. Having trouble finding the setting to disable the auto play feature in youtube. Only want viewer to see my video.
Do you have a more recent learning video than “264.BL-Insert Video in Blog” posted on your site in 2013? Seems the screens in youtube have changed since when your tutorial was prepared.
A: Thanks to your message, I just made a new video: 526. BL-Embed YouTube Videoi In it I do show how to disable the option for Suggested Videos at the end. Let me know if this is what you needed.
Thanks for the updated video. Process now works great and only my video plays when selected.
Another issue has arisen. When the viewer selectes the video to play the following message is received and they are re directed to the YouTube web site to play the video. Is there a setting I can select or change to allow the video to play within my blog?
“Watch this video on you tube. Playback on other websites has been disabled by the video owner”
Thanks for your ongoing help.
There’s a setting for that. Don’t know how yours got set to embed not allowed, but you can change it by
- visiting your video on Youtube,
- click the Edit button below and to the right of your video
- click the Advanced Settings link – just below your video towards the right
- Scroll down to Distribution Options and check the Allow embedding box
Hope that helps.
