YouTube

The YouTube app is only available in Full and Pro subscriptions.

Add a YouTube video to your page, by simply copying and pasting the web address (URL) of the video.

YouTube video owners can turn on ads to be shown in their videos. Unfortunately these will also show in the bottom of the Bizplay YouTube app. If you yourself are the video owner, make sure you disable ads in YouTube itself for the best viewing experience.

Properties

You can configure the app using the following properties:

Property Explanation
Web address of video Go to YouTube and navigate to the video of your choice. Simply copy the YouTube web address you see in your browser's address bar and paste it in this input field to load the video into your Bizplay page. Please note: it is possible to specify multiple videos in the web address, see the paragraph below.
Closed captions (Only if available with the video) Show/hide closed captions (subtitles).
Start playing at (sec) Configure how many seconds into the video it should start playing. This option is not available when the web address of the video specifies multiple videos.
When page is shown Select what the video should do when the page is shown (during playback):
  • Play once from beginning: when the page is shown, start video playback from the time configured in "Start playing at (sec)". When playback ends, the app will turn black.
  • Continue playing: when the page is shown, continue playing the video from the position where it was last stopped.
This option is not available when the web address of the video specifies multiple videos.
Volume If you like to include the sound of the video, simply set the appropriate playback volume.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.

Specifying multiple videos

When using the web address of a video contained in a playlist (copying the web address of a video that is part of a playlist) or of a playlist (copying the web address of the page of a playlist in Youtube) the Youtube app will assume the intention is to play all videos in the playlist. The Properties of the Youtube app will show an informational message when this is the case. The playlist part of the web address can easily be identified. It is the part of the web address that starts with 'list=' followed by a code consiting of letters, numbers and dashes or underscores. It ends at a '&' or the end of the web address.

When multiple videos are specified in the web address field these videos are all played from the start of the list to the last video in the list each being played from start to finish. When the whole list has been played, playback is resumed from the first video in the list.

If it is not your intention to play the videos of a playlist and only want to play one video; make sure to remove the 'list=playlist-id' part of the web address. Please note that you do not remove the '&' following the playlist ID since that is not part of the playlist ID. Make sure the web address contains a 'v=' followed by a code consisting of letters, numbers, dashes or underscores. This part of the web address specifies the video you want to show.
