When you like a video on YouTube, you may want to share it with your acquaintances. It is, of course, quite possible, and this, in a few clicks. But did you know that the platform also allows you to share not all of the content, but an extract? This handy feature is also very easy to use.



Sharing content outside of YouTube can be done on different services. Indeed, the platform also includes the possibility of integrating the videos on other media. It is then necessary to copy a code generated by YouTube and copy it into an HTML page. Want to share or embed YouTube videos? This tutorial explains everything you need to know on the subject.

Share a YouTube video

Here are the steps to share content:

1. Go to YouTube.

2. Click on a video thumbnail to view it.

3. Below the video, select the "Share" option (it's denoted by an arrow icon).



4. Choose the service on which you want to share the content (WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.).

You can also directly copy the link and share it as is on your other services.

Note that you can, if you wish, choose when the video starts. Then enter a time code (for example: 00:25).
