Embedding a YouTube Video
YouTube is the preferred video hosting platform of the University of Southern Indiana. It allows the University to store large video files in an external location, saving valuable web space on USI servers.
Embedding a YouTube video is a good alternative to linking to the video on the YouTube website. It prevents users from leaving the USI website to view the video content.
Videos should be:
- Short, no more than a few minutes in length.
- Audience appropriate.
- Free of advertising.
- Free of copyrighted material, unless rights have been purchased and proof can be provided.
