Video for Content Editors
These days, every website has some video content. We wanted to make editing video easier for Epi content editors, so we created the YouTube Video block. This block is a feature of our new SCORE for Episerver platform, which launched in 2019.
To create the best editor experience with on-page editing functionality, we created the YouTube Video block – which actually consists of two blocks: a Dojo widget and two views. In this way, the changes are visible immediately on the page editing view and the block can be used as a stand-alone block or as a property of another block or page type. And of course, you’ll need a working YouTube Data API Key.
YouTube Video block is in the Videos group.

This is an example of a stand-alone YT Video block. After creation, you can see the placeholder image which is clickable (on-page edit).
YT Video editor is a Dojo widget where you can perform video searches in the same way you’d usually do on the YouTube website.
On editor dialog, you have a result list and pagination links.
Just click on the desired video and the video field will be updated with the selected video right away.
