    go to youtube. find the video you want to use. click the button under the video that says share. copy and paste. you then go to your hub and hit edit and select video under add more capsules. hit the edit button in video then paste your youtube link where it says video url or embed code.

      By the way, I noticed if you create a video, as opposed to a recipe, it makes you upload one. But I read somewhere that uploading a video gives it priority over a recipe. I'd much rather embed my YouTube video so that it drives traffic there too...?

    Hi iswaryaa22,

    I see that sam209 already answered your question.  Good luck with finding good youtube videos to insert into your hubs.  That can take you on quite a journey of discovery and then picking the best ones to insert into your hubs is a decision that you have to make.

    Yes it is. Videos make your content more engaging. in fact, you will notice that in the current format, you are actually encouraged to use relevant videos from YouTube in your hubs.
