To show a selection of videos in youtube that is easily editable, embed a playlist. When you update the playlist on YouTube, the playlist on your site will update as well. This is a good way of creating longer stories through a series of videos, or simply giving your readers more pre-selected content to watch.
- First create a playlist, go to the My Playlists page, click ‘Create a Playlist’ and fill out the information.
- As you find videos you like on YouTube, click ‘Add to Playlist’ under the player to add them to your list. You can change the order of the videos in your playlist by returning to the ‘My Playlist’ page.
- The easiest way to embed a playlist is to create a custom player. Go to your YouTube account and click “Custom Video Players”, then “Create Custom Player”. Select a color and format for your player, and then choose what is going to play in it – you can choose a playlist, your own uploaded content, or your favorites – and then click the “Generate Code” button.
- Copy and paste the code into your blog entry or web page.
