Embedding Music On Your Page

1.

Head on over to your profile editing section. It can be found by clicking 'options' at the top of your page, or clicking here.

You will notice a new section on this page now, titled "Music embed here".

***Note, placing a general YouTube URL here will not work.

It still needs to be in the proper code format.***

 

2.

Once you have your embedded code, paste it into this text box. An example is shown below:

 

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FKcDtEtT3wU?rel=0&amp;autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

***Note: the bolded portion is what you will change in order to switch the video that will play. The digits FKcDtEtT3w are unique to the video, so those may be replaced in order to efficiently change this.***

Secondly, The portion that states ?rel=0&amp;autoplay=1 after your URL is necessary in order to have videos autoplay. Make sure autoplay=1 if you want your video to immediately play upon visiting your page, or autoplay=0 if you do not want it to.

 

3.

If your code for embedding was done correctly, the end result should be something similar to the image above.

 

4.

What if you don't want your profile section/video section to show?

If you want to hide this portion of your page, place this code within your CSS section alongside any other codes that hide portions of your page:

 

/* Hides about section */

.section-member-about{ display:none !Important; }

 

This will effectively hide the YouTube embed box from your page- but, remember that this also means your page visitors will have to mute the tab and/or turn off sound if they do not want to listen. They also cannot click on the video if they wanted to replay it, all the same. Food for thought!
