Default How do you embed a youtube video on an html page on top of an image in Dreamweaver?

The webpage is all html. No css. I don't know css. I used this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7XpO...ure=plpp_video to take my site designed in photoshop and make it with Dreamweaver.

I just want to simply embed a Youtube video in a specific position on the page. But the only to embed the video is to push down one of the images and put the video beside it. I want the video to be embedded on top of the page layout as if it floats there in front of the image behind it.

As you can tell, I have no idea what I'm doing.

I want the video to be on the page like this site: http://www.dollarshaveclub.com/

if you right click on a Youtube video, you'll see the option to copy to embed. Then go to DW and paste the code wherever you want the video to appear.

go to http://www.yontif.com/gallery.html & have a look at the code. You can see precisely how it plays out.

I couldn't resist to have a little rant on that guys youtube channel. You should forget everything what you've learned from this guy. He teach you bad practices... well, kind of cause 10 to 15 years ago it was the way people developed websites, but the techniques of today are far more superior to develop stable and cross browser websites that are easy to maintain.

I dont's know of any good DW video tutorials, but 9 out of 10 on YouTube is crap. There's lynda.com but it's paid. There's also http://tv.adobe.com/product/dreamweaver/ which teach you design view things.

But my advice would be to start reading tutorials about HTML & CSS and learn to work in code view. HTML dog is quite easy to follow for newbies.

Yeah, it's quite harsh, but I get sometimes sick and tired from these 'teachers' that are teaching newbies old habits and/or bad practices, because they don't even know themselves what they are doing.

I am a dinosaur - an even I don't use that type of coding - hehehehehe
that was quite a shocker.

There is so much info out there that users should stick to reputable sources. Lynda.com - I think is worth the money and this forum - plenty of good brains and experience. Did I say friendly too?

Ok. that was a good chuckle
