How to add Youtube Video on Facebook branding page with Static FBML
In our last tutorial on Facebook, we discussed about how to show Tag clouds on your Facebook page and in this tutorial we will discuss about how to add Youtube Video on Facebook page with the help of Static FBML.
1. Add this awesome application “Static FBML” into your desired Facebook pages.
2. We will use <fb:swf> tag in FBML for calling Youtube Videos as a flash.
Sample FBML code to add Youtube Video on Facebook FBML
width='340' height='270' />
We assume that “xxxxxxxxxx” = YouTube video ID
For example, In a video with url http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thhNNKQv1EM
“xxxxxxxxxx” = thhNNKQv1EM = YouTube video ID
Note: The default thumb generated by Youtube are of low resolutions so you can also use your custom thumbs in place of default. In a similar way you can also embed the flash on Facebook branding pages and make it separate tabs. If you have any queries regarding Facebook branding then feel free to drop your comments.
Will an embedded video in FBML still work when accessing the FB page on a mobile device? (Iphone/Blackberry?)
Thanks for your wonderful information sharing. I had added a flash on my fb page but it is not running when page is loaded while when url of my site loaded it automatically runs. Could you please tell me how i make it.
Great post but how would I create a custom thumb in place of YouTube default so its not so blurry on my fbml tab?
This is a great read.. thanks for the info!
