I am having difficulties embedding a Youtube video into Confluence. I have attempted to paste in the main Youtube URL and the 'Share' Youtube URL, but the link will populate and disappear within about a second. I've seen people recommend using a 'Widget Connector' as well, but I cannot find it in my Macro options.
Are there any other ways to embed a video? I know Youtube has an option to share -> Embed, but I can't find a way to include that, either.
Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
To use the Widget Connector Macro, you need to click on Insert > View more, as the following Screenshot:
Then you have to search for Widget Connector:
Add the Youtube Video URL in Web Site's Widget URL and you'll see it this way:
We recommend the Widget Connector Macro to display online multimedia content. If want to read more, please check Display Files and Images.
Please let me know how this goes. If you run into any trouble or have questions along the way, we’re happy to help!

Thank you for your reply. I have searched for the Widget Connector in that way, and it isn't one of the available options for me. Also, my screen looks slightly different. It actually reads "Other Macros" rather than "View More. " Is there any other way?
Actually, the "View More" is an option for the Cloud version. In Server, I found the button as "Other Macros'. The name is different, but they lead to the same option of Select Macro.
There's a chance that your Widget Connector Macro is disabled. We had a security issue regarding this plugin, as we describe as Widget Connector vulnerability - CVE-2019-3396 in Confluence Security Advisory.

Can you please confirm if it works?
I was looking for an answer to the same question, thank you for being able to answer it! However, I still don't understand why I can't find Widget Connector Macro. Maybe I'm just very inattentive. It happens to me that I don't notice a thing that is literally right next to me. I guess I should just do something more useful. I'm thinking of making my own application in which you can convert YouTube videos to any desired format. However, I'm not sure that such an application will be really useful. It's much easier for people to just watch a video on the Internet and forget about it. Well, I'll probably make an application anyway just because I can.
