The MindTouch video dialog allows authors to quickly insert and responsively display YouTube videos in a page. The rendered HTML5 video player utilizes YouTube's native embed code to provide a browser and plugin independent experience that can be viewed on any modern device.
In addition to the YouTube player, authors can paste any third-party video provider's native embed codes directly into the video dialog, which allows for a smoother authoring experience.
Add a video to the page
- Open your page in Edit mode.
- On the editor toolbar, select the Video icon.
- In the YouTube tab, type the URL of your hosted video or enter a query to search for a YouTube video.
- Click Insert video.
- Resize the video by clicking it once and dragging the corners.
Supported video sources and types
Because MindTouch uses the native embed code for each video hosting service, supported video types and sources are determined by the video hosting provider.
If your site uses an SSL with a custom domain, you need to reference YouTube videos via HTTPS to ensure videos successfully render in your MindTouch page.
