How to Embed and Integrate YouTube Videos in SharePoint Content Editor Web Part?

Its a frequently asked question to me, guys asking: “I need to add YouTube videos in my SharePoint  site”. In fact it is very simple to implement. So I’m going to walk-through on how to embed YouTube videos in SharePoint, just using content editor web part.

1.   Go to and get to the page where your desired video resides. Right-click on the video and choose “copy embed html”, it should be something like this
embed youtube in sharepoint

 <object style="height: 390px; width: 640px">
	<param name="movie" value="">
	<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always">
	<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="360">

3.   Modify the content editor web part and paste the embed HTML code by clicking “Source Editor”
