Over the years it seems YouTube has made it more and more difficult, or tricky shall we say to embed your YouTube channel into your website. It used to be a simple click here and click there and you’re off to the races. Lately, it’s a little more painful. I’ve spent countless hours scouring the internet for ways to accomplish this task only to find thousands upon thousands of articles covering older methods of doing this that do not work anymore.
The other day I happened to stumble upon a great little website that offers the ability to edit code directly online and get immediate feedback for how that code will render. The website I found is known by some and probably unknown to many. It is called JsFiddle and can be found at www.jsfiddle.net I encourage coders to head on over and check it out. It is a great little online testing environment.
The code I found was created by a Simone Gianni using the JsFiddle site to draft it up and test it out. He has two versions online on JsFiddle. One version just shows your channel in a typical YouTube API Player and the other shows your channel with a nifty sidebar / carousel displaying other videos from your YouTube channel.
I’ve implemented this handy little widget of sorts on the home page of www.mentalwellnesstoday.com so that you can see it in action.
