  • How can I embed a YouTube video in Tridion?

    Normal YouTube Code:

    <iframe width="247" height="167" src=""; frameborder="0"></iframe>


    Since there is nothing between the opening iframe tag closing iframe tag, Tridion converts this to a single tag:

    <iframe width="247" height="167" src=""; frameborder="0"/>


    This breaks the template because the browser is expecting a closing tag. The workaround is to put some text in between the tags to prevent Tridion from converting the html.

    <iframe width="247" height="167" src=""; frameborder="0">YouTube Video</iframe>


    In the case of iframe tags, it does not matter what text you put between the opening and closing tag, as long as its not empty. It would be best practice to put some sort of related text though, maybe “YouTube Video” or even just “Video” would be fine. Also, for videos that are currently broken, you will have to remove the "/" at the end of the opening iframe tag, and add the closing </iframe>:
