Youtube Lesson! JULY 2008

Ok students pay attention!....lol

I have had a couple of people asking how to embed a youtube video, so here is the pm that I sent out. I hope this helps!

*************************************************

First, you need to upload a video to Youtube. I am assuming you already did this. If not, scroll down and look at the second lesson..lol.

Second, Find the embed code. Open My Video's (which if you scroll over your username in Youtube it should have a drop down menu and My Video's is the first one) and click on the video that you want to use on its title.
On the right hand side of the page is the embed code. Right click and copy it.

Next, paste it.

Here is a video that I pasted. (It has a astrick at each beginning so that the video does not show so that you can see the code.

Without the astricks, it should look like this:

************

First, you need to create a youtube account.

Once you are logged into your account, on the first page in the upper right hand corner is a yellow upload button, click on it and then click on video file.

Next, click browse and pick the video from your documents that you wish to upload. Once you have one picked out it will send you to a form. Fill out hte title, description and give it a couple of tags. For my tags for the video I am uploading now, I put baby and jumping b/c it is a video of brayden in his jumperoo.

Then click Save Changes and wait. Depending on how long the video is, it may take thirty minutes or ten minutes, or an hour. I usually just open another internet page and look at other stuff while it uploads.

And that is it!
