# FBML Code for Embedding Youtube Videos, Flash Based Music, Video Player

<fb:swf
swfbgcolor="000000" imgstyle="border-width:5px; border-color:white;"
swfsrc='http://www.youtube.com/v/kffacxfA7G4&autoplay=1'
imgsrc='http://img.youtube.com/vi/kffacxfA7G4/0.jpg' width='480' height='360' />

Notice certain aspects in this video code… youtube videos are in flv so we can use swfsrc in fbml. The kffacxfA7G4 is the video id which you can find in any youtube url.

&autoplay=1 is an youtube customize trick that will automatically start playing the video when the image is clicked. Here the image used is the default screenshot of the youtube video. I guess you can figure out the rest.

Simply use this code and replace the youtube video id with yours. Here is how it look (below)
