YouTube has made it a bit more tricky to copy and paste the ‘embed’ code from a video. Usually if you are posting a YouTube video onto your website or your blog site, you would want the embed code so that the actual video appears on the page, and not just a link to the video.
In the past, the embed code was very visible, right below the YouTube video that you were watching. You can still access the code by right clicking on the video itself and selecting ‘Copy Embed HTML’. That will copy the code to your clipboard. Paste it right into the website or blog you are working on or if you want to save it for later use open up a Word doc or Text Edit/Note Pad doc and paste it there for later use.
