YouTube videos in Markdown – via Markdown Cheatsheet · adam-p

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/28

Clever, as I didn’t know you could directly refer to the YouTube preview image using the “/0.jpg” trick:

Youtube videos

They can’t be added directly but you can add an image with a link to the video like this:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE
" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE/0.jpg" 
alt="IMAGE ALT TEXT HERE" width="240" height="180" border="10" /></a>

Or, in pure Markdown, but losing the image sizing and border:

[![IMAGE ALT TEXT HERE](http://img.youtube.com/vi/YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE/0.jpg)](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE)

Gif using gifs.com

If you allow using resources outside of YouTube, then you can use gifs.com to render the video into a gif image and use that image in the above construct.

I tried that with a few seconds from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHOpw55TI-U which resulted in https://gifs.com/gif/liquid-prompt-Lg1kPp and the gif file https://j.gifs.com/Lg1kPp.gif

YouTube to MP4 & MP3 Converter and Video Download – ClipConverter.cc

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/10

Every now and then I want to download or play a (fragment of a) YouTube video.

This is what I use to grab the video as music: YouTube to MP4 & MP3 Converter and Video Download – ClipConverter.cc

Then I use Audacity to create fragments.
