How to Use

The example above were taken from cycle2’s youtube example page so please read it first: http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle2/demo/video.php

  1. To add a youtube video, click “Add Slide” and use the “Custom” slide type.
    Place your html code in the textarea. The following format should be observed: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/f7AU2Ozu8eo?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0">Paul Irish</a>
    Its an <a> tag with a url pointing to your youtube video. The youtube video should use the URL from the old embed code (youtube.com/v/).
  2. To add an image, click “Add Slide” and use the “Image” slide type.

For better understanding, below is a screenshot of the settings used for the above slideshow:
