Insert YouTube Videos

YouTube has made some changes to how their videos act within certain frames, so the Quicklink feature in D2L for these types of videos does not work consistently in any browser. So, to use YouTube videos in your D2L site, you will need to use use the Insert Stuff feature:

  1. Click on [Content].
  2. Go to [Manage Content]. 
  3. Select [Add New Topic] to the desired module. 
  4. Choose [Create New File]; you'll have to fill out some of the usual information here, but you'll see an HTML editor here instead of a place to upload your files. 
  5. Click on [Insert Stuff] (see screenshot below). 
  6. Choose [Enter a URL]. 
  7. Paste the URL of the YouTube video into the empty line. 
  8. Click [Next]. 
  9. Click [Insert]. 
  10. Click [Save].
