The YouTube playlist widget allows you to connect directly to a YouTube play list without having to add the videos into the Training Tilt platform. This is a great way to easily include regular content like video logs or just videos you want to quickly share with your clients. If you use it for a video log you can upload your videos directly to your YouTube account and add them to the playlist and they will automatically appear in the widget.
A few simple steps to get setup.
First grab your YouTube play list id from YouTube. To do this, you can grab it out of the URL from the playlists web page.
