Youtube, on completing their 1 billion subscriptions milestone launched a feature to let youtubers add a subscription widget to their site, blogs. So that people can subscribe to their youtube channel from outside youtube.
This is a great help to video networks like Howcast, Revision3 and people who have their own site for streaming their videos, vlog etc.
Subscribe Widget for Your Youtube Channel Videos
All you need to do is embed the code below into the html of your website or blog, in the same way you embed a YouTube video:
<iframe src=http://www.youtube.com/subscribe_widget?p=snaphow style="overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;" scrolling="no" frameBorder="0"></iframe>
Replace snaphow with your youtube channel name. You can style the iframe using regular css styles codes. Here is how my youtube channel subscribe widget looks like…
