Adding a YouTube Video in Weebly

The YouTube Video element in Weebly allows you to embed YouTube videos on your web page. This element can be found in the Multimedia section of the Elements tab (the last element on the far right). 

The YouTube Element from the Weebly toolbar

Adding a YouTube Video

To add a YouTube video to your page:

  1. Drag and drop the YouTube Video element anywhere on your page.
  2. Click anywhere in the element to bring up the toolbar. 
  3. From YouTube, click the Share button beneath the YouTube video, and copy the direct link for the video.  No other link will work, so be sure to use the one found here.
  4. Paste the direct link into the Video URL field of the toolbar, and your video should show up on your page in less than a minute.
    If your video does not show, please ensure that you are copying the correct link. Do not copy the embed code.

Once your video appears, you can determine the size of the video player and how you want to position it on the page.

Advanced Options

There are a few advanced options available for YouTube videos.

  • Configure the padding for the top and bottom of the video element
  • Alternatively, specify the YouTube ID directly rather than using the URL
