If you find a video on YouTube or another video sharing site, you will often see a small line of text just beside it that says “share” or “embed.” Copy this code (highlight it and press CTRL+C). Once you’re on DigitalJournal.com you can paste that code in one of the two ways specified below. To see a sample of an embed code, click here
Embedding a featured video in news articles
A video can only be added to a news article by the article’s author. Digital Journalists write the news on the site, so we leave embedding video up to them. If you shot or found a video that you want them to see, post a comment or click on their name and send them a link. If they like the video, they can choose to embed it in their article.
If you are a Digital Journalist and you want to add video to your own work, you will need to post an article to go with it. The article should describe the video and why it’s newsworthy. While writing or editing your article, you will see a small field that says “embed code” (it’s just below your article’s body of text). Paste the code there. If you are not a Digital Journalist and you want to become one to embed your own video, you can check out how to become a Digital Journalist
Embedding multiple videos in articles, blogs and comments
You can also embed one or more videos inside an article, blog or comment by clicking on the the small square button that has a YouTube icon. If you're posting an article, blog or comment you'll see this button along with the tools to make text bold, italic, link, photo embed and spell-check.
Once you click that button, follow the prompts -- it will ask you to provide a link to the video. Copy the website URL from YouTube where your video is and paste it in the pop-up. Our system will take care of the rest so when you publish your article, blog or comment the video will be embedded automatically.
