How to embed a YouTube channel into Confluence?

Is it possible to embed not just a single video from YouTube but the latest video posted to a particular channel? I imagine something similar to a Twitter feed but for videos within a YouTube channel.

Hello, it is quite simple to embed a Youtube video in Confluence, just follow, the steps below.


1. click on the link icon on the toolbar

2. paste your link

3. click on the link which you just pasted

4. A toolbar should pop up, click on "Display as a link" on the drop-down, select Display as embed, and that's all.



I am unable to see Display embed.  I wonder if there is another way since I'd like for the video to be shown. When using the widget mentioned at the beginning of this thread, it says you can adjust the size.  For me, I cannot.  Also, I cannot go into fullscreen unless I tap the YouTube icon.

you can use iframe macro and just give youtube URL into URL filed

  You can ad a single video through the Widget Connector.  This can be done using the following steps.

  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

Since the channel is just an iframe you can use the HTML iframe macro to embed it.  You can find directions here:

This didn't work for me, nor did the related page. This should be a really easy thing to do, especially with the new editor.

EDIT: the "share" link that I got from YouTube didn't work. I used the direct URL in the bar, and that worked using this method.

This isn't working for me either and it is MAJORLY annoying.

Didn:t work for me.  I just got some gears or a sad face.

Did you use the url or the share link?   It has to be the actual url and not the share link.
