Embeding a YouTube video into a webpage is a great way to add multimedia content on your website. It’s also pretty easy to do. Here are some YouTube video player customization tips shared by Vidiseo:

THE BASICS
YouTube makes you do a little digging around to find a video’s embed code. Click the “Share” tab underneath the video and then click “Embed” and you find the code to copy and paste:

If you take a closer look at the YouTube embed code, you’ll see that it contains a YouTube URL in quotes:

YouTube Embed Code Sample
There are a number of different parameters you can add to this URL that change the look and feel of the embedded YouTube player. Just remember that the first parameter must begin with a question mark and each additional parameter begins with an ampersand:

For example, here is my embed code with 3 parameters added. Notice how there are no spaces, and the entire URL is still within the quotation marks like before:
