Adding a video

Posted by | 1 comment

Like images, videos can be easily added to blog posts:

Embedding a video

Videos can’t be uploaded directly. Instead they are stored on other services, like YouTube. To embed a video from YouTube, simply copy the address into a new line of your post:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qtU0mHTd3s

Alternatively, you can use the embed syntax:
[embed]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qtU0mHTd3s[/embed]

If you want to control the size that the video will be displayed you must use embed:

  • [embed width=”700″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qtU0mHTd3s[/embed]
  • [embed height=”100″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qtU0mHTd3s[/embed]

For posts on blogs.pcc.edu, the maximum width should be “700”.

What videos can I post?

Just like images, videos must be accessible and free of copyright violations. The best option is to only embed videos from the official PCC YouTube channel.

If you are interested in having a video created and posted to YouTube, please star the process by completing the media production request form.

Videos without timed captions, or those with copyright violations may be removed without warning.

Add to the discussion

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
