How to Insert a YouTube Video into Your Website with BlueGriffon

by Christopher Heng,

One of my visitors asked me how he could insert a YouTube video into his web page using the free BlueGriffon web editor. This article shows you how this can be done.


This tutorial assumes the following.

How to Embed a YouTube Video into Your Web Page with BlueGriffon

  1. Open your YouTube video in a web browser and let it play.

  2. While it is playing, click your right mouse button on the video. A menu should appear.

  3. Click the menu item that reads "Copy embed code".

  4. Start up BlueGriffon if you have not already done so, and open the web page into which you want to insert the video.

  5. Click the spot on the page where you want the video to appear. This will put your text cursor at that location.

  6. Click the "Source" button at the bottom of the BlueGriffon window. The web editor should now display the underlying HTML for your page.

  7. Click "Edit" on the menu bar, followed by "Paste" in the drop-down menu that appears.

  8. The code for the video should appear in the place where your text cursor was located. It should look something like this:

    <iframe width="854" height="480" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    (Note, the above example is for an actual video, my contact form video tutorial, and as such, it will not be identical to what you get for yours. For example, the video identifier that occurs after the word "embed" will definitely be different.)

  9. Click the "Wysiwyg" button at the bottom of the BlueGriffon window to return you to the visual editing mode, then save the page and publish it to your site in the usual way.

  10. Start up your web browser and go to the web page that you just uploaded to test the result.

    Note that the insertion of the YouTube video will probably mean that your web page is no longer mobile-friendly. By default, if you have created your site using my BlueGriffon 2 tutorial, your pages will adapt to mobile screen sizes as needed. However, any page containing the YouTube embed code will not, since the video has such a large default fixed width, exceeding the widths of some mobile devices.

And yes, this procedure is the mostly the same as that for inserting any HTML code into a web page with BlueGriffon.
