Add YouTube video to a listing in Matrix


If you have a virtual tour of a property posted to YouTube and would like to attach it to your listing in Matrix, there are specific steps you must take in order to do so properly (and stay in the good graces of our Compliance team).


Pull up the video on YouTube and click the Share button underneath the bottom right:




Click the Embed icon:




That will display the Embed Video code. There is a small portion of the code (highlighted in orange below) that gets entered into Matrix, but there is no way to copy just some of it from this screen:




You will need to copy the whole thing and paste it into Notepad, Wordpad, Word, etc. first. Once it is pasted into a text editor, you can then copy just the portion of the code needed for Matrix (the part inside the quotes, but not the quotes themselves):




You can now go to Add/Edit in Matrix, select the desired listing and paste the code into the either of the first two Virtual Tour fields:




Click Submit Listing when you're finished.
