Add YouTube Files to Your Web Pages Without Dreamweaver

One of the greatest strengths of using Web 2.0 applications like YouTube files with your DMXReady applications is that you never have to use Dreamweaver to insert them into your web pages. For example, here is a YouTube video we added directly into Landing Page Manager. As you'll see, this video is a handy overview on Google Docs:


Embed your slideshow in a table or DIV box, and even leave room for a caption.

Insert Your Own YouTube Video

To insert your own YouTube Video, simply:
  1. Find the video you want to insert (www.youtube.com).
  2. Copy the line of script in the "Embed" text box.
  3. In Landing Page Manager, click on the "Edit Page" link at the top of the page (log in if necessary).
  4. Scroll to the bottom to the WYSIWYG editor, and place your cursor in the middle of the table.
  5. Click on the "View/Edit Source" icon on the WYSIWYG editor (looks like this: <>)
  6. Paste the script into the source (Ctrl "V") and click the "OK" button, bottom right
  7. Click the "SAVE" button on the WYSIWYG editor and view the page.
Try it for yourself using this table:

 
Click above this line to insert your own YouTube video!


 

Using DMXReady applications as a CMS solution is especially handy if your company (or that of your client) produces their own YouTube videos for viral marketing, training, or some other reason. Now, anytime you want, anyone in the office can change the video or add new ones simply by adding the line of script that YouTube provides.

If you can surf the web, send an email, and cut and paste text, you can create this web page!
