embed youtube channel in presentation

There's a ton of posts already, so I'm being a little lazy...

I have a frameset web page built and displayed in the webpage gadget.  I want to have a link to a page that has someone's youtube channel embedded.

The closest I've been able to figure out so far is http://ytchannelembed.com/
that allows me to create what loks like a playlist, and I can embed that in the mainFrame. When I click on one of the thumbnails it opens a page on top of the entire screen area for the webpage, and I don't have a back button.

Anyone have a better idea?  I came across another site codehandling.com, but I don't really understand all this javascript and other voodoo.

Jeff,

Scott's Digital Signage has built a Youtube Widget for the platform that allows you to add individual youtube videos, as well as playlists to your presentations.

Thanks Blake. I'll check it out.

I plugged it into my presentation and it will play the videos OK.

Is there a way to run this from the mainFrame on a webpage in my frame set?  I would like to have this in the presentaiton I have so if the user clicks on the youtube link in the leftFrame, the playlist video plays in the mainFrame. 

Furthermore, it would be really sweet if it would randomly play the playlist videos.

I emailed Scott's digital signage support address to ask the same questions.

Jeff,

If I understand what you're trying to do, I've never actually seen it done in house. It sounds like you may want to bypass our editor completely and just host a website displayed with a custom URL through Rise Vision.

Scott's Digital Signage support is great! Let me know their thoughts on a random play option, I agree it would be a great addition!

Blake,

No, I'm using your editor.  I have my frame set displaying through the html widget in the content list.  The other pages work fine.

It's analogous to what I did to display commercials that I have uploaded to youtube from my website

http://www.csramultimedia.com/pages/video-production/video-production-services/commercials.html

Forget that these are youtube videos that show up in the middle of the screen - the frame set structure of the page is what I'm discussing here.

What I'm doing in the presentation on your editor is setting the links in the leftFrame of a frame set to open their target page in the mainFrame. The youtube channel is a new challenge for me.

Just means that things will never get boring!

Thanks for pointing out the Scott's digital signage widget!

Jeff,

I think I understand what you are trying to do here now! I don't have any input in the process, but it definitely would be interesting to see should you get it up and running. Please check back when you have something, we always love seeing cool presentations!

Thanks Blake.

I just found this on yahoo search

Looks like this might do the trick, since coding is explained in the article.  Stay tuned...

Looks like embedding a playlist is pretty easy by itself though.  They all have embed code available

Here's one of mine as is without any parameter mods
