Embedding Youtube Videos

° First thing first, visit YouTube and get you
search for the video you want embeshare

  YouTube
° Click to view the video, now, there are option just below the video, click on share

YouTube
° There are 3 options, Share, Embed and Email, click Embed, then select and Copy the code, displayed in a box for you.

° Once you've copied the code, go to your blogger blog post, select the HTML compose option, then scroll to where you wish to Embed the youtube video on your blogger post
The code looks like this
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/CCuiIHJLUGc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Note; the width and height is customizable, you will have to change it to your preferred width and height so the video can fit in to your blog. 
This customization is important if you don't want the video clustering or overlapping your contenit'sdepending on the width of your blog.

You will notice from the code above that the width is "560" the height is "315" so, you should customize the width especially depending on the width of where it is being embedded, you can't embed the video with the width above on location with 540 as its width because, it will overlap the contents on the blog and you wouldn't want that. To get a perfect fitting, you will have to reduce the width and height as follows,

Width " 500 " while Height " 290".

This way it will be smaller than the default screen size to properly fit into the blog contents.
