Question
I noticed there’s a feature which allows insertion of YouTube videos, I’m just wondering how I do this. Where can I find the YouTube ID?

Solution
Inserting YouTube videos is very simple, just follow these steps.

1) Getting the YouTube ID

1. Open up your web browser and load the video you wish to insert into the publication.

2. Look for a button labelled ‘Share’, this should be located below your video.

3. Selecting the share button brings up a panel of features, one of these will be a shortened url for your publication. This will look like http://www.youtu.be/C0D3H3R3

4. This code you see after the http://www.youtu.be/ is your YouTube ID.

5. Copy this code to a safe location.

2) Using your ID

1. Open your publication in 3D Issue v5 Professional.

2. Switch to the ‘Design’ tab.

3. Expand the ‘Interactive’ panel and select either ‘embed video’ or ‘insert video’.

4. Paste in the YouTube ID you retrieved earlier, then select ‘ok’.

5. Your video will now be inserted. In order to view, please upload your document to your chosen host.

 

NOTE Remember, when copying to exclude the ‘www.youtu.be/’ part of the URL.
