Embedding YouTube videos into confluence

Is it possible to embed a YouTube video or other video hosted on a remote server into a Confluence wiki page? If so, how do you do it? Essentially, I would like to share the same video on multiple pages without having to attach the video to each individual page.

Hi Jackson,

This can be done with the Widget Connector Macro. To add a video do the following:

1) Create a page to which you want to add the video

2) In the toolbar click the plus-button and then choose Other Macros

3) Search for Widget Connector

4) Paste the URL, define the size en click Insert

Now the video should appear in your page (you can test with preview).

Hope this helps?!

In the latest version of confluence you can simply paste youtube url in the editor and Confluence will create a widget connector macro for you.

Can I do this here in Confluence Answers?

This doesn't work in Confluence 5.2. At all.

You need to upgrade

Is there an update to this that allows for a playlist-enabled URL to be processed?

Adding this to the existing Widget Connector generates a widget error. 

Running Confluence DataCenter 6.0.4
