7.1 Adding Youtube video on your website using Plain HTML element

It is possible to add a Youtube video on your website, by using the embed function on youtube.com. This will create a video player as shown below. (img 7.1.1) 

Go to the Youtube website and find the video you wish to use. Below the video you click the Share (Dela) link under the video. (img 7.1.2) 

Now click on the link Embed (Bädda in) to access the code used to insert the video clip on your website. (img 7.1.3) 

If you need to adjust the width of the video, this can be done below the code field. After adjusting, copy the code. (img 7.1.4) 

Now go to your TYPO3 website and add a new element. Select "Plain HTML" under the tab "Special elements". (img 7.1.5) 

Add the copied code in the field as shown below, save and close. (img 7.1.6)

    I'm having trouble finding the "plain HTML" option with typo3 version 6. It appears that all the options for the type of elements you can create have change, and none provides plain HTML. Where would I find this now?

    Hi Thomas, I'm not able to find any reports on the issue you are having. I would recommend that you contact your TYPO3 supplier, and see if they have made any changes to your user access rights.
