Promote your university’s YouTube channel to potential subscribers in 2 easy steps

I have no clue when this new feature was implemented by YouTube, but it’s now possible to embed a YouTube channel on any web page, but just grabbing a piece of code (as you would with any YouTube videos or playlists).

Here’s a quick visual demo of the 2 steps using Duke University’s YouTube channel as an example:

Step #1: Locate and grab the “embed this channel” code

Step #2: Paste the code on your web page (or blog post) and here’s the result:

    This tip was great – I don’t know if the channel embed is new or we just collectively missed this. My only wish is that you could control the width – 320px is a bit wide for a sidebar-type widget.

    I haven’t tried yet, but a quick look at the code shows width and height parametrers, so it might be possible to resize them.

    Have you tried without avail?

    You can change the width and height parameters, but the content in the box doesn’t resize accordingly – it just gets cut off.


    Nice feature, but boo on that.

    Thanks for testing it, Erik!

    Hopefully, they will fix that soon.
