Embedding You Tube videos on my SBI site

by Lee LeFaivre
(The Villages, FL)

My situation is I am a travel agent, and many travel companies create very professional videos and post them on YT.

I am thinking that I can just embed their video on my site - that the act of embedding actually includes a player.

I was thinking to just try it but got to researching the forums and didn't see anything about that process.

Is it true that just embedding their link takes you to YT instead of playing the video in place?

If that is the problem, is there a way to take their video and run it through the conversion program and host it elsewhere? It seems that would allow me to follow your instructions for video on the site.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi Lee,

Yes, you can add YouTube videos to your website, but you are also correct that if your valuable visitor clicks on the YouTube video player, they are instantly redirected to the main YouTube site, and are unlikely to return (Or even worse, go to your competitors site!).

But there is a solution.

SBITUBE 2.0 is a video hosting and embedded service recommended by SBI! that not only offers dependable hosting, custom embed code, player skins, and much more, but they also provide a YouTube Grabber tool, which allows you to 'grab' any video from YouTube (That permits embedding) and add it to your website using a brand-free, ad-free and redirect link free player (You can even customize the player to add your own logo, ads, links etc!).

They also have just launched a 'Remote Video Upload' tool that would allow visitors to your website to upload their own travel videos directly from your website - all you have to do is add some code that SBITUBE 2.0 provides.

It sounds perfect for you. They have a free 30 day trial, so pop over to SBITUBE 2.0 and try them out.
