RETRIEVE THE YOUTUBE VIDEO EMBED CODE

Step 1: Get YouTube's share link at the bottom of the video.


Note:
If you're using public videos, this is not applicable, but if you're pulling videos from your own account, please ensure that the privacy settings within the Youtube video are set to "Public" or "Unlisted". YouTube blocks video sharing if it is set to private. These settings can be edited within your YouTube Studio settings at https://studio.youtube.com/
