Tell Us About Your YouTube Channel

Provide us with the full URL for your YouTube channel.

Some channels use a visitor-friendly name and are in the user folder (such as https://www.youtube.com/user/NASAtelevision for NASA).

Others use an alphanumeric string and are in the channel folder (such as https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCryGec9PdUCLjpJW2mgCuLw for NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory).

Either URL format works.

Opt to Display Your Videos

When you add the URL for your YouTube channel, we'll automatically index your videos—both your uploaded videos and playlists.

We'll show the videos by default. You can toggle the settings for showing your videos on the Display Overview page, choosing to show them as a facet, inline module, or both.

You can edit the default label, Videos, on the RSS feed on the RSS page.

See the sample results page below that shows video results for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for a search on mussels.

Did you know? Do you have a multimedia gallery on your website for your agency's photos, images, videos, podcasts, or other multimedia content? Do you use a content management system, database, or media RSS (MRSS) feed to power this gallery? You can index MRSS feeds so that your multimedia content is automatically included in your search results.
