Embed Video in Yahoo Search results - Search Monkey
I am at the beginning level as far as codes go. I can use simple codes that are prewritten and in most cases successfully insert information.
I am a neophyte.
The code for embedding video in Yahoo! search results is a bit beyond me. The directions are not neophyte-friendly at least for me and I'm at a complete loss.
This is what I am referring to:
I have a YouTube video I am going to embed on one of our websites.
Where does the Yahoo code example go on the page:
<object width="512" height="296" rel="media:video"
<a rel="media:thumbnail" href="http://example.com/thumbnail_preview.jpg" />
<param name="movie" value="http://example.com/video_object.swf" />
<embed src="http://example.com/video_object.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="512" height="296">
I enter the width and height from the YouTube video
I enter the YouTube URL (where the video resides) in "resource" 'param name" and "embed src"
The YouTube thumbnail is not on the same server as the video yet the directions require that.
Is this code in addition to the standard YouTube embedding code that does work?
The rest of the information is sketchy as far as my limited knowledge goes so I could use some assistance and please be patient and kind.
The directions should be dummed-down for people like me with apologies to all the people who understand this stuff.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
