YouTube videos repository



The YouTube repository

The YouTube repository allows users easily to embed videos from YouTube. It is disabled by default on new installs because it requires an API key.

Enabling the YouTube repository

The same API key may be used to configure the Youtube block.

Searching for and embedding a video from YouTube

Repository capabilities

There is just one capability, Use YouTube in file picker, which is allowed for the default authenticated user role.


The YouTube repository is enabled but I still can't see the YouTube option in the file picker

Are you sure we are working with the text editor? The YouTube option allows us to search for and embed YouTube videos into the editor in places such as labels or pages. You won't see it simply by clicking the "add" button when uploading a file, for example.
