How to create a Custom Player in YouTube®

I've noticed that many people still post the first video of a multi-part series instead of creating a custom player, while posting links to the other parts as the first comment.

Not only is the posting of multiple links as time consuming as creating a custom player, but tends to lack a bit of luster and removes the user from the VideoSift® page to see the rest of the video.

Once you create your first player, you'll see how easy it is and will be able to create them with ease.

Things you'll need:
  • 1 YouTube® account
  • Multiple videos on YouTube®
  • Just a few minutes of your time

    Step I:
    - Open the first video that will be in your new player.
    - Click on the "Add to playlist" link underneath the video.
    - Select the "Create new playlist" link at the bottom of the dropdown combo box.
    - Call the playlist what the title of the movie is.
    - Type in or paste in a description (max 1000 words).

    Step II:
    - Open the 2nd video that will be in your new player.
    - Click on the "Add to playlist" link underneath the video.
    - Select the playlist you just created (Refresh the page if needed).
    - Repeat this step for each additional video part to complete your playlist.

    Step III:
    - Click on the "Account" link at the top right next to your YouTube name.
    - Click on the "Playlists" link under the "My Videos" section.
    - Locate and select your new playlist and click on it.

    Step IV:
    - Click the "Create Custom Player" Button.
    - Customize the player as needed.
    - Click the "Generate Code" Button.
    - Copy this code in the Video Embed Code section of Videosift® when you submit a new video.

    Step V:
    - Enjoy watching your complete uninterrupted show in your new custom player in Videosift®.

  • You are being lied to about Somali pirates

    Odds are you laughed a little when you heard about pirating on the rise in the 21st century. But as is always the case, extraordinary events don't happen in a vacuum, and there is always a backstory. Sure, some of them are plain gangsters, but others have different reasons.

    Says Johann Hari:
    Did we expect starving Somalians to stand passively on their beaches, paddling in our toxic waste, and watch us snatch their fish to eat in restaurants in London and Paris and Rome? We won't act on those crimes – the only sane solution to this problem – but when some of the fishermen responded by disrupting the transit-corridor for 20 per cent of the world's oil supply, we swiftly send in the gunboats.

    Read the whole article. It's a short read, and well worth your time.
