Adding Your Own Videos to Youtube

If you have a video you can create a profile on YouTube for free and upload your video(s) to your account. During the upload process, YouTube will streamline and convert your videos to play on the web. Once it has been uploaded, you will be able to embed any of your videos into your website using code provided by YouTube. YouTube accounts are free and I would suggest creating a new account just for your business. Once bonus that YouTube gets you is another avenue of traffic viewing your content. Be sure to add your Integer website URL to your YouTube profile so any traffic from YouTube can locate your website.

A couple things about YouTube videos:

  • When you add a video to your website, it is paused by default. This allows you to have multiple videos on one page and will only load videos the visitor clicks on.
  • You may have noticed in Step 3 that there are options for videos size, border and colors. You can make any adjustments you wish to the video display - be sure to copy the code after you've made your changes
