Adding Youtube videos to your social networks profiles like MySpace, google plus and Facebook is a great way to share your videos or favorites with friends. Or, if you’re promoting something (like your band) on MySpace, videos will help attract visitors to your page, who can then share the link with their friends. The social network sites have similar ways to add videos, so we’ll use MySpace as an example.
- Sign in to your MySpace Account, then click the “Edit Profile” button.
- Next, go to the video that you want, and look for the ‘Embed’ box in the “About This Video” section. Copying the HTML code that’s there into your website will create an embedded player.
- You can resize the player by editing the object width=”425″ and height=”350″ fields at both the beginning and end of the embedded player code. Make sure that the sizes you choose have the same ratio as the default numbers, so that the video doesn’t get stretched – just multiply the width by 0.8235 to get the height.
- Click “Preview”, and then “Submit”.
