Embed YouTube clips in iBooks


Add a YouTube clip widget, which expands to play fullscreen from within an iBook.

Great when you wish to include online materials, but do not want to distribute the entire video. Automatically shows a notification screen if the reader is offline, or if their institution blocks access to YouTube.


Paste the YouTube video URL into the Widget Wizard below, and click "Create Widget".
Your custom widget will then be generated and start to download.

Make the widget image from the video (please ensure you have rights to the video's copyright)


After pasting the url and clicking "Create Widget", your download will begin.

It is a zip file, so double click on the downloaded file to uncompress its contents.
(If you're using Safari to view this, just click cancel if you see the Widget Installer popup).


Locate your uncompressed widget, then simply drag it into the desired place in iBooks Author.


You can then click to edit the widget title and description, and you're done!

(Note : the video will be streamed using the YouTube player api and is subject to its original copyright, together with the YouTube terms of service)
