The YouTube module allows adding a YouTube video to a presentation. It can be done by specifying the video ID or its URL (either full or shortened version).


The list starts with the common properties, learn more about them by visiting the Modules description section. The other available properties are described below.

Property name Description
HTTPS If this option is checked, the module embeds the YouTube video over the SSL/TLS secure protocol.
ID The video's ID which can be obtained from the YouTube website.
URL The URL from the YouTube website (.com domain) or shortened version (.be domain, default in the YouTube share option). If an ID is set, then this property is ignored!
Offline message This message will be displayed instead of a video when the content is previewed offline.
Disable fullscreen Disables displaying the video in the fullscreen mode.
Time start Value in seconds, greater than 0, that determines the time from which the video will start. If the video should start from the beginning, then leave this field empty.
