8.3 Adding Youtube video using Text & Media element

You can also add a Youtube video on your website, by copying the URL of the video on the Youtube site, and adding it to the "Text & Media" element in TYPO3. This will create a video player that can be placed in a text mass. The video has a restricted width, so if you wish for it to adapt to the screen size, please use the "Responsive video" element. (Img 8.3.1) 

Go to the Youtube website and find the video you wish to use. Copy the URL address. (Img. 8.3.2)

Now go to your TYPO3 website and create a new element on the page where you want the video. Select "Text & Media" under the tab "Typical page content". (img 8.3.3) 

Below the tab "Media", click "Add media by URL" to open the fields to add the address for the Youtube video. (Img 8.3.4) 

Paste your copied URL in the text field and click add. (Img 8.3.5)

After adding the address, the video is presented in the element. Here you can handle the file (1), add a unique title (2), add a description for the video (3) and enable if the video should start playing automatically after loading page (4). (Img 8.3.6)
