YouTube has finally realized that websites are becoming responsive and they get viewed on mobile devices. Not before time :)

So big changes to the way you embed YouTube videos.

Apart from the new look you'll discover that there's no list of size options to choose from. That's because WordPress strips out the size and makes the video full width of whatever screen you're viewing on. It encloses the video in a "fluid width video wrapper". That's geek-speak for responsive.

Please watch the video as I walk you through the new way of embedding YouTube videos.

Thanks Marion! Great and savvy, most of concise training. This video explained the mystery of why the size of the video appeared to be so huge on my screen -- it's self-adjusting.

In some ways I might prefer to make it smaller, for example to appear as more of a small size or a thumbnail size. I don't know what you might think of that.

Anyway, cheers! All the best, Marc.

Good stuff! I saw in other posts that you need to put a "share" button on youtube videos. I don't believe that you included it in your training. Do you know how to do it? Thanks!
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
I'm not quite sure if I'm understanding you correctly, Ian. YouTube adds the share button to the videos.
Reply
ianfroi Premium
I think I found what I was looking for. We will just have to check the box for "Show video title and player actions". If it's unchecked, it won't show the share button. Thanks!

Thank you for the information Marion! So, if the video that I post is mine, from my Youtube channel I cannot just embed the URL? I have not had any problems with them showing up, but would I decrease the size if I did the embedded code? Thank you
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
If you want to keep people on your own website then use the embed function and make sure to deselect 'show related videos'. If you want to lose your visitors to YouTube then use the URL link.
Reply
ColleenF1 Premium
Thank you, I think I explained it wrong. The way I have been adding the video was getting the URL and posting the actual video on my post (Copy and paste), so they are watching it on the post itself. It is just that I did not do it the way you describe. I am having a problem with my text to media ratio as I have many photos in all of my posts. I am trying to find ways to remedy the situation. I didn't know if the embedded version would use less memory. Thank you again for your guidance, I appreciate it very much!
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
When you just copy and paste you get extra black bars top and bottom and at the end of the video the suggested videos show up. People often click to watch another video and you've lost your visitor to YouTube.

I don't understand what you mean by "having a problem with my text to media ratio as I have many photos in all of my posts". What is wrong with having a lot of photos?
Reply
ColleenF1 Premium
Well, for instance, one post is 3500 words with 104 pictures, and another is just 1800 words with 75 pictures. You see, the concept I had in my head was to give virtual tours of different beaches. After an SEM Rush analysis, I was told that the text/media ratio was too low, therefore, the chance of ranking isn't good. I have been told to try photo galleries so that is my next big project. I will have to redo my videos too! Thank you ;-)
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
Some advice you get should be ignored. 3500 words can have lots of pictures and the content should rank well. If you were writing 200 words and had 200 pictures I would be concerned. Try not to over analyze. When it comes to your own website you can do whatever you think is best.

I watched your training video from the link you sent to me, you did an awesome job on that training video. I only had one question come to mind, I was wondering will we be able to delete categories and tags from the new editor or still have to do it from our dashboard as we are doing it now?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
As usual, there's more than one way to accomplish anything in WordPress. You can edit categories from Posts > Categories which will affect all posts using a particular category. And you can edit individual posts. And you can use Quick Edit from Posts > All Posts. I don't think that will change when Gutenberg is released.
Reply
celiacman Premium
Thank You Marion,
It would be sweet if you could delete categories and tags right from your posts, I have not really looked for a way to do this but I did not think it was possible.

I get a lot of tages built up over time and I have to go to my post tags on my dashboard to delete the ones I am no longer in need of.

Jeff
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
There's nothing wrong with having a lot of tags. Tags help the search engines understand what your posts and pages are about. I've never deleted a tag ever. Categories are a different matter.
Reply
celiacman Premium
I have some tags from when I started my website and changed my niche so they are not relevant to my blog now...............how many tags do you add to a post when you publish a new post........can you have too many tags and categories for the search engines?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
Tags are relevant to an individual post so they don't affect the rest of your website. Usually, 2 to 5 tags are enough for each post.

Yes, you can definitely have too many categories. Categories help your visitors find articles on your website that they are interested in. This article should help explain

Thanks Marion ... very timely. I had just reviewed a much older tutorial on placing and sizing a YouTube video.

There used to be a few more HTML Text steps to place and size a video to match the content width.

Was it simplified by WordPress updates or Google?

WordPress led the way with making videos fill up the available space then YouTube changed their code to suit WordPress and HTML.

Hi Marion, I already have 2 embedded YouTube videos where I didn't adjust the size, I left it :)

I noticed the size option was removed later, and wondered what I would do IF I wanted to change it.

I'm happy that WordPress strips out the size to adjust any screen and even MORE happy to see your excellent training once more with this one :)
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
You can change the size by adding some extra code to wrap the iframe into a division. There's a link above under "Related Training".
Reply
PatsyC Premium
Thanks Marion, is it need now that Wordpress adjusts it?

Thanks :)
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
I just plain wouldn't bother doing it. Half the people browsing the internet are using mobile devices so having fixed sizes for anything is counterproductive. Even column widths are expressed in percentages instead of pixel size these days.

Hi there
Thanks for this info and its very important for us folk here in WA
I know that videos help to get your post and website ranked and indexed by Google
Do you know by chance what videos are free to use on our websites without incurring any copyright infringements etc etc...
I know that some of the YouTube vids are free to air and licenced to use etc...
is there anyway of identifying these...Pls
Thanking you in advance,
Thanks again for this tutorial
Cheers PB

MarionBlack Premium
When I upload a video on YouTube I have 3 choices. The video can be "Public", "Unlisted" or "Private".

Public videos can be shared or embedded on other people's websites.

When you try to share or embed an Unlisted video a message pops up "This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing." Please don't share or embed unlisted videos.

Private videos can only be seen by people who are logged in and have had their email address added to the list of people who are allowed to watch the video.

It's OK to share or embed public videos.

Reply
MarionBlack Premium
Large files slow down your website's loading speed and increase the load on the servers. This would not end up as a good user experience.

The safest and easiest way to add video to your site is to upload it to YouTube and then embed it using the process I show above.

It's got to be something simple. So I'm asking silly questions here. Did you save the draft? What happens if you publish? Can you go through all the steps again to make sure you've got it right.

I haven't published it yet; maybe that 's why. I first wanted to finish editing before I publish. I will wait till I publish and see. Thank you!

It worked! I just had to publish it to see it, saving the draft and trying to preview won't show me the video. Anyway I am happy:)

Yeah, it should fix that issue you were having with the related videos showing at the end.

I just implemented it. It did work. I've been fumbling around, understanding only part of the stuff I saw on the Youtube pages and often having to guess away until something worked. I remember previously seeing a notice on Youtube that said Google was no longer allowing the use of webcams to create videos beginning 1-16-2016. I was hot as hell about it but it appears not be accurate. However training tapes that showed you how to create videos with webcams did not match what I saw on the Youtube pages. It just didn't work the way they said. The webcam plus microphone method works but you have to get an approved encoder software program downloaded before you can make it work.

Sorry! it seems my message didn't went through my mobile :P

I wanted to ask if I include a video from youtube (which is not mine), should I give give credit to the owner? should I do somethingin the website not to get penalized by Google for using a video from another person? Or I'm not going to get penalized?

I know I should start to create my own videos but as I'm pretty new and english is not my first language, I'm a little shy yet :P

Thanks for all your input on the community! you are the best.

As long as you don't claim the video as your own creation or modify it in any way you can go ahead and embed it in your website. I have one website with around 70 videos from YouTube and only 2 of them were created by me.

How do you do this if embedding has been disabled for the video?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
You don't. If videos don't have the standard YouTube licence (or public domain) then using the video would probably be a breach of copyright.
Reply
AngryRabbit Premium
Thought so. I was just confused though because I thought everything on Youtube was free to use. Obviously not!

Free to watch but not necessarily free to share :)

Hi Marion,
I enjoyed your training about how to embed a YouTube video. Thank you! Question for you,...suppose I find a YouTube video and want to share it on my website...how would I know if that YouTube video has a standard YouTube license or public domain license?
Thanks so much!

When you click "Show More" under the video you'll see the licence at the bottom.
