Obtaining the URL

The embedded video-URL has to be obtained from YouTube, before adding the URL into the admin panel.

    Find the YouTube URL of the video you would like to loop in the lobby, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ
  2. 2.
    Select the
    button below the video.
  3. 3.
    Click the 'Embed' option.
  4. 4.
    A tab will open with code containing the embedded video-URL.
  5. 5.
    Make sure to ONLY copy the URL, for example: https://www.youtube.com/embed/dQw4w9WgXcQ
  6. 6.
    The code at the end of the URL is called the VideoID. In the case of the example above the VideoID is: dQw4w9WgXcQ
  7. 7.
    Add the following line at the end of the URL and make sure to add the VideoID: ?autoplay=1&playlist=VideoID&loop=1
