How to embed a YouTube Video?

I was wondering how I could embed my Youtube channel's newest video. I don't want to update my website every time i upload a new video.

You can click "Share" icon under the YouTube video. Then click "Embed", there'll be a embed link for you.
Does your YouTube channel have an RSS feed? That might work if your site has a way of easily placing an RSS feed of your videos. My blog theme has a way of easily sticking any RSS feed in the blog sidebar. So you might want to consider something similar if your site has a way of doing it.

Short of that, I'm not sure what to tell you. You can easily embed any YouTube video by hand, but that doesn't sound like what you are looking to do.
1. Create a playlist in YouTube - whenever you upload a new video, just make sure you add it to that playlist.

2. You can then generate embed code for that playlist - to do that, go to the Playlist area in your Account (http://www.youtube.com/my_playlists).

3. Highlight the playlist that you want to embed and click the dropdown arrow on the "Edit Playlist Info" area.

4. When the area opens, there's an area for the embed code - just copy/paste that code into your Web site / blog.

You may also be able to embed a channel - check out these links for other options...




In order to embed a YouTube video into another website or blog:

1) Click the Share button located under the video.

2) Click the Embed button.

3) Copy the code provided in the expanded box.

4) Paste the code into your blog or website.
