How do I share a video to YouTube?

Bryan, our Client Partnerships Director, explains how WIREWAX videos can be used with YouTube and our YouTube wrapper. Read on to learn more about our YouTube wrapper.

Here's the short answer: Youtube does not support WIREWAX interactivity on Youtube.com.

However, if you're a loyal Youtube fan, you're in luck: you can host your WIREWAX videos via Youtube. Hosting via Youtube still requires you to use the WIREWAX iframe code on your website, however you'll garner views back to your Youtube channel. Click here for an example of our Youtube wrapper.

To get started, you'll just need to upload your video to the Studio using the Youtube view page URL. Videos that were uploaded direct via a file to WIREWAX cannot be hosted on Youtube.

Once the video has fully uploaded, create your interactivity as normal. Once you've finished, you can copy the embed URL from the 'Embed' tab. With this, you can add the URL parameter, ?player=yp. You'll see this as an option titled 'Use Youtube player'.

*Note: The interactive experience can not currently sit on a YouTube player page; however views on the embedded video will be garnered back to these channels.
