How to embed youtube video

I’m pretty new to website creation and having difficulty trying to embed a youtube video in an item and then getting it into an exhibit.
any documentation or help would be terrific.
thank you

You might want to take a look at the UC Santa Cruz YouTube Import plugin.

For just embedding a video (not attached to an item) in an exhibit, check out this conversation on the forum. Bear in mind you might need to check your Security Settings if html filtering is enabled.

Thank you for the help. I cannot get the embedded code to work. I am trying the youtube import plugin but, I am having difficulty installing the plugin. The plug in page reads “This is not a valid plugin” . I am stuck.
thank you for any feedback.

What version of Omeka Classic and YouTubeImport are you running?

I am running Omeka 2.5.1 and installed YouTube import version is 1.3 (at least that is what the plugin.ini doc says.

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the plugin - and double check that the folder has the correct name in your plugins directory

thank you, doctor. it works!
