Adding a youtube video to articles, events, listings or products

The LVSYS CMS supports native youtube videos in its slideshows. Adding a youtube video a simple process.

Using direct YouTube video link

Example of a video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50_p7H-OYlk

  1. Locate the video on youtube.
  2. Copy the top url that should look like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50_p7H-OYlk
  3. The 'v' parameter is the most important thing. Make sure it's in the URL
  4. On the LVSYS Admin Panel, go to Multimedia->YouYube
  5. Click on "Add"
    1. Check 'Active'
    2. Give your video a title, something meaningful is good because we'll use this to display the video within the admin panel
    3. Paste the video URL into the "Youtube URL" field.
    4. Save.

That's it. Now the video is in your video library and you can drag it to any article from the 'Media' tab (make sure to check the 'YouTube' box above the photo/media browser)
