[edit] [purge] Template documentation

This template provides a simplified way to use the EmbedVideo plugin. It automatically uses the standard thumbnail size and position used on this wiki.

Usage

The YouTube template should be called in the following way:

  • {{YouTube|<videoID>|<title>|<options>}}

where

  • Video ID is the ID is the bold part of the URL (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqNcksMfAjM)
  • Title (optional) is the caption for the video
  • options (optional) control some other functionalities of this template. Specifying br in this parameter tell the template to create a new row after embedding the video. Specifying link makes the template return only a hiperlink to watch the video on YouTube.

Examples

  • Embed a video by specifying video ID and title. Titles longer than the box will automatically be truncated. We are embedding only one video, so we should add the br tag to the 3rd parameter. In this example, {{YouTube|VqNcksMfAjM|The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Intro with caption text longer than thumbnail box size|br}} will produce this:
  • Embed a video by specifying only video ID, so the 2nd parameter is null. We are embedding only one video, so we should add the br tag to the 3rd parameter. In this example, {{YouTube|VqNcksMfAjM||br}} make the template use URL as title since no title was entered:
  • Return a hiperlink to watch the video on YouTube by specifying video ID and title. We want only the hiperlink, so we should add the link tag to the 3rd parameter. In this example, {{YouTube|VqNcksMfAjM|The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Intro|link}} will produce this:
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Intro
  • Return a hiperlink to watch the video on YouTube by specifying only video ID. We want only the hiperlink, so we should add the link tag to the 3rd parameter. In this example, {{YouTube|VqNcksMfAjM||link}} make the template use URL as title since no title was entered:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqNcksMfAjM

Notes

  • To use only video ID and an option, you must null the 2nd parameter by using ||, like this: {{YouTube|<videoID>||<options>}}
  • The 3rd parameter only accept one option. If you include more than one option, none of them will work.
  • Using multiple calls will make the videos be side-by-side (the last video should ALWAYS include the br tag to the 3rd parameter):
  • When you need one video in each row, you should add the br tag to the 3rd parameter of all videos, not just the last:
  • If you use this template and forget to add the br tag to the 3rd parameter after calling the last video, you'll get something weird, like this topic!
