gatsby-remark-embed-video

Embed a Youtube Video in your Markdown

Inspired by gatsby-remark-embed-youtube

Install

  1. Install plugin to your site:
npm i gatsby-remark-embed-video

yarn add gatsby-remark-embed-video
  1. Add following to your gatsby-config.js:
    plugins: [
      {
        resolve: "gatsby-transformer-remark",
        options: {
          plugins: [
          {
            resolve: "gatsby-remark-embed-video",
            options: {
              width: 800,
              ratio: 1.77, // Optional: Defaults to 16/9 = 1.77
              height: 400, // Optional: Overrides optional.ratio
              related: false, //Optional: Will remove related videos from the end of an embedded YouTube video.
              noIframeBorder: true, //Optional: Disable insertion of <style> border: 0
              urlOverrides: [
                {
                  id: 'youtube',
                  embedURL: (videoId) => `https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/${videoId}`,
                }
              ] //Optional: Override URL of a service provider, e.g to enable youtube-nocookie support
              containerClass: 'embedVideo-container', //Optional: Custom CSS class for iframe container, for multiple classes separate them by space
            }
          }
          ]
        }
      },

Note: if you also rely on gatsby-remark-responsive-iframe or gatsby-remark-images, you have to define the embed-youtube plugin first:

plugins: [
  "gatsby-remark-embed-video",
  "gatsby-remark-responsive-iframe",
  "gatsby-remark-images"
]

Note: you can style the videoIframe using .embedVideo-container or by specifying a custom class

  1. Restart gatsby.
