Rich snippet info for YouTube video

  • Hello,
    We use YouTube as a hosting platform for the videos we produce and embed on our website.
    Everything works fine except I’m wondering what URL we should use in the Content URL field. Should we simply use the YouTube URL? I’m not sure how to get the exact URL of the media file hosted by YouTube.
    Thank you,

  • Hi Arnaud,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Yes, you should use the YouTube URL as the embed URL as well.

    It is actually is for self-hosted videos where you know the embed URL but it works with YouTube/Vimeo as well and you have to choose the Video URL as the embed URL.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Thanks Todd!
    You answered about the Embed URL but my question was about the Content URL field (direct link to video file) 🙂
    Should I just use the same URL?
