You can enhance your articles through the use of embedded video. A video is an animated graphic, or a short motion picture. A good video is like a good image: it enhances your article by drawing the viewer's attention to an important point.

Support for YouTube Embedded Video

Currently, CreationWiki supports the embedding of videos hosted on the Youtube service.

How to find videos

You can search any of the above shared-video services for material. If the service allows direct linking of the video, then you may link to it as well.

Using videos not yet hosted

If you create a video yourself, or if you find a video that is in the public domain or otherwise licensed under terms and conditions that allow you to upload it to another site, then you can always create your own account at YouTube and upload the video yourself.
WARNING: CreationWiki does not condone copyright infringement. Do not upload a video to any site if you do not have permission to upload the video in question.

Format for embedding a video

The format for embedding a video in your article is:

<youtube>filename</youtube>

Text does not "wrap" around an embedded video. It appears above or below it. Videos are always left-justified on the page.

As an example: <youtube>DgI1hZabSAE<youtube>

produces this result:
