Including a You Tube video

For example, to include the famous "evolution of dance" YouTube video, have a look at the browse address bar and copy the id. In this case it is dMH0bHeiRNg.


And to make it a bit smaller:


This is an embedded YouTubevideo!

To scale down to thumbnail size, on the right (or left) with a short description, you could use:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg|200|right|This is an embedded YouTube video!}}

Including a GoogleVideo

To include a google video copy the id from the browser bar. Note that it has a little minus at the beginning.


Customizing the appearance

The EmbedVideo parser function expects to be called in any of the following ways:

  • {{#ev:service|id}}
  • {{#ev:service|id|width}}
  • {{#ev:service|id|width|align}}
  • {{#ev:service|id|width|align|desc}}
  • {{#evp:service|id|desc}}
  • {{#evp:service|id|desc|align}}
  • {{#evp:service|id|desc|align|width}}


  • service is the name of a video sharing service (See "service name" in the list below)
  • id is the id of the video to include
  • width (optional) is the width in pixels of the viewing area (height will be determined automatically)
  • align (optional) is an alignment (float) attribute. May be "left" or "right".
  • desc (optional) is a short description to display beneath the video when it is aligned
