Inserting the video on your site

After uploading the file on YouTube you can find it in the "My Uploaded Videos" list
  1. go to the page of the video you want to insert in your EditArea site
     
  2. below the video, there's a section "Share", from which you can click on "Embed".

Copy all the code in the rectangle:
<object width= ...
      ...    </object>    

Once you've copied the code, you'll have to enter your site (in edit mode):

  1. enter in the block you want to insert the video into
  2. click on
  3. paste the previously copied code.
  4. confirm by clicking on Ok.

Make the video play automatically when the page is opened

To make the video start automatically when the page is opened you just have to add, just after the file path, "&autoplay=1". You can also make it loop at the end, by adding "&autoplay=1" after the file path.

For example:

<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TZ860P4iTaM&autoplay=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TZ860P4iTaM&autoplay=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>


Note: videos can be inserted anywhere in the internal pages of the site, or in blocks created by you in the home page, not in the preset blocks of the home page.
