jekyll-embed-video

Embed YouTube, Vimeo, Twitch, Streamable, Mixer, Google Drive videos/clips and more in Jekyll webpages without a plugin. If you are hosting your webpage using GitHub pages, you can't use third party plugins. Here is a method to use "includes" instead of plugins.

See the raw text in example.md for a complete example. Remember to add in video-embed.css for responsive videos that automatically resize with changing window dimensions.

Embed Google Drive

Embedding Google Drive videos have additional steps.

  1. For the desired video, change the link sharing setting to On - Anyone with the link. This will make the video accessible to anyone who has the link as no sign-in is required.

Important: If you do not change the video setting to this option, your video will not show.

  1. Double click the video to show the preview. Click the setting options and select "Open in new window". Now click on the setting option again and select "Embed item". The iframe code should appear. For example:
<iframe src="https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EC8BnjJMon-vqy-UhLKk9sf_oukZzEbP/preview"></iframe>

1EC8BnjJMon-vqy-UhLKk9sf_oukZzEbP/preview would be your video ID.

Note: Right clicking the video will not bring up the embed option. You must open the video in a new window.

Create a file in your _includes folder called googleDrivePlayer.html with this code inside:

<div class="embed-container">
  <iframe
      width="640"
