Add a video using the Media icon in the WYSIWYG - YouTube, HTML5, Flash

You are most likely to use the Media icon  to embed YouTube videos onto your site. However, you can use it for other video such as HTML5 and Flash.

Before you start, you need to obtain the YouTube embed code or any other code you wish to embed.

Note: If you have any problems inserting Media in Internet Explorer 9 or 10, please try it in a different browser such as Chrome.

  • Login with your admin login.
  • Navigate to the page where you would like to insert the Video
  • Click on the Edit tab
  • Place your cursor within the WYSIWYG where you would like to insert the video.
  • Click on the Media icon . You will see a pop-up window.
  • Click on the tab for Source.
  • Paste in the YouTube HTML5 or Flash embed code.
  • Click on the General Tab in the pop-up window. This will populate from the embed code that you have just pasted in.
  • Click Insert. Please note that the code will be inserted but you will see a yellow box instead of the video.
  • Save your page and you will see the live page with the video embedded.

Tip

You can turn off suggested videos by adding ?rel=0 to the URL, or by unchecking the checkbox - "Show suggested videos when the video finishes"
