Videos can be displayed as a gallery using this component, or singly, using the Video Component. The Video Gallery Component will display a previously created YouTube video playlist. The Video Gallery Component does not allow you to create your own YouTube playlist. A playlist must be created in YouTube and imported into the gallery.
Be careful of copyright -- YouTube aggressively removes videos that do not clearly meet copyright restrictions.
This component has only one tab.
Playlist: Create or find an appropriate playlist on YouTube.
Copy the playlist's ID (16 letters and numbers, such as A2D72B463B04A430) or a YouTube generated URL that contains the playlist ID and paste it into the component box.
Limit: Optional limit of how many videos to display. Displays specified number from the start of the playlist.
All videos on UBCMS websites must have captions. An additional transcript is optional, but if provided, should be closely associated with the video player. Captions (and transcripts) support those who cannot see or hear your video.
Best practice: captions are most easily added using the automated tools on YouTube, even if the final placement is not in that platform.
