This is an official ShoutWiki help page, hosted at ShoutWiki Hub. If you want to suggest changes, leave a message on this talk page. If you want to replace this with a custom help page for your wiki, click the create button above.

You can embed YouTube videos to any ShoutWiki-hosted wiki. The videos can add a lot to an article, and make it more appealing and informative for readers.

Adding a video

To add a video (like the one shown on the right side of this page), type in the following wiki markup into the article that you want the video to be displayed on:

<youtube>ID of the video here</youtube>

You can find the ID of the video by going into the YouTube page of it. An example URL for a YouTube video might be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YozC8yFrZKI - the part after v= is the ID.
