How to embed video into your post on DC

Hey Community,

Here is a short article about how to embed a video into your post.

It's actually pretty simple. You just need to follow the following steps.

1. Open a video you wish to embed in YouTube:

2. Click Share and choose Embed:

3. Copy the contents of the upper right  textbox or just click on the Copy button in the bottom right corner:

4. In your post on Community switch to Source view:

5. Insert the copied content from step 3 exactly where you want it to be:

6. Click on the Source button again to return to the WYSIWYG view and continue writing your post.

This is it - this is how you embed a YouTube video into your community post.

Hope it answers one of your questions on how to write on Community ;)

Great instruction, Anastasia!

Maybe we could add a new(sic!) button into editor that will expect Youtube URL and will transform it into the embedded form and insert the fragment into the post?

Sounds easier than several operations?

yeah, it's already in our development plan ;)

stay tuned for the updates!

great to know - thank you :)
