Adding YouTube to the Learning Center | DeskDirector

Posted by Administrator

In this One Minute Wednesday we take you through how to easily add YouTube videos into DeskDirector's Learning Center.

 

More detail

Once you have the YouTube video code the resulting URL will look like this;

https://www.youtube.com/embed/[videocode]

You can also add a few options to the end to give it extra polish. They are;

rel=0 Stops YouTube showing the related videos at the end
autoplay=1 Causes the video to autoplay once loaded
showinfo=0 Stop YouTube showing the video title

Therefore the new URL would be;

https://www.youtube.com/embed/[videocode]?rel=0&amp;autoplay=1&amp;showinfo=0

or for example

https://www.youtube.com/embed/XwTf3xiBG28?rel=0;autoplay=1;showinfo=0

Hi, welcome to another one-minute Wednesday. We’ve got some great feedback about our last video, and how you can introduce DeskDirector to your clients that in this video, we thought we’d take you how you can introduce them using YouTube, and how you can add YouTube videos into the Learning Center of DeskDirector. There’s a few little tricks, but we’ll show you how to do it.

Okay, we head over to the video that we want to share with our clients, and then coming down to the share section and choose “embed,” and then copy the URL from here. It’s right near the beginning. Okay, then come over to the DeskDirector admin console. Go to managed learning, and bring up the category that you want to add this video to. Paste in the URL. Put HTTPS at the beginning of it. Give it a name, and insert it. Now when we come over to DeskDirector, and your client goes to the category that you’ve added this item to. When they click on it, you’ll see the video up here—here inside the window. I hope you found that useful. Head over to the knowledge base to learn how you can add a couple of extra settings to make the video play automatically, but also stop those annoying, little related videos coming up at the end. Okay, bye for now.
