8 ways to link YouTube videos

In general, it makes sense to upload your videos to the video environment(s) and link from there embed-code to your website. Here's a good one article comparison of different video environments and why YouTube is a good choice.

Below I will share 8 good tips and ways to link YouTube videos (to your website).

1. Watch or show videos in high quality (HD format)
If you have made your video in a higher version than YouTube's standard solution (in any case, you should), then adding the video address line at the end: "&fmt=22" will automatically play the HD version of the video (in any case, you should not).

Keep in mind that for the HD version, loading the video requires a faster internet connection or patience while it loads… and viewers are not patient. If you want to watch a video in full screen or show it to your friends, the time to download an HD video is worth it.

2. Linking YouTube HD video to your website
If you want to show the YouTube video on your website in HD version, you should embed koodi lisama “&ap=%2526fmt%3D22″ – jällegi, vaataja ei ole kannatlik!

3. Go straight to the part of interest
YouTube is full of videos where the most exciting part is only at the end or in the middle. If you want to show your video exactly from the desired time, add "#t=02m38s" to the end of this address line - in this example, the start time is 2 minutes 38 seconds.

For example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e14c7e4cjc4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e14c7e4cjc4#t=02m38s
You can easily generate the end of a video link, for example: http://youtubetime.com/ from address.

4. Show a video placed on your page from a certain time of day:
Add “&start=30” video embed code to start showing the video later, at 30 seconds in this example.

5. Make the video play or repeat automatically on the website
Adding embed code "&autoplay=1" the video placed on the homepage will start playing automatically
You can repeat the video by adding the code "&loop=1"

6. Hide search
The search appears when you move the mouse over the video linked to your homepage. Add to hide it embed code "&showsearch=0"

7. Skip related videos
You have made a good introduction or travel video, and you don't want YouTube to show other (competitors) next to it? Just add “&rel=0” to the end of the address line.

8. Bypass the YouTube regional filter
Some videos are only available in certain parts of the world. Your IP address determines your location, and based on this, it becomes clear whether you can see the video or not. Change your address to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= http://www.youtube.com/v/ -ks and the problem is solved (then add "v/" before the address).
