Youtube in ReStructuredText in Plone

Project description


This is a tiny addon for Plone that enables embedding of Youtube videos in ReStructuredText.


Include the egg in your buildout:

| [buildout]
|    eggs += collective.youtube_rst

Manual setup

You will need to allow IFRAME tags in your site.

  • In your browser, goto /@@filter-controlpanel
  • Under Custom tags hit the button ‘Add Custom tags’
  • in the new input field, enter: iframe
  • Hit ‘Save’ or your changes will not take effect


You can now embed a youtube video in rst using the ‘youtube’ directive:

.. youtube:: foobar

Optionally you can override the default with (560px) and height (349px) settings:

.. youtube:: foobar


ReStructuredText to HTML conversion is (apparently) done save-time, not render-time. If you’re fiddling with the rst config, you may need to re-save any rst documents for changes to show up.
