Add a YouTube movie to your web page.
Sketch out an instance of the Action using the Action tool. The Action will inform you if the box you have sketched is an optimum size and will advise on a height based on the width of the Action on the page. This will change depending on controller options. You can ignore the recommendations. However, your video will be either “letter boxed” or “pillar boxed”.
Movie URL: Enter the URL of the YouTube movie you want to display
YouTube Player: Select a YouTube player option from the dropdown. The default setting is the best one to use. Note that Version 2 is deprecated, and may not be supported by YouTube in the future. It is provided here for compatibility purposes. We recommend the use of either the iFrame or the Version 3 options.
Version 3 is a Flash based player, which will be embedded in the browser. The iFrame option chooses whether to use an HTML 5 native player or the Version 3 Flash player depending on browser capabilities. Note that some other options may not work as expected in this version of the player if HTML 5 video is served.

Show Controls: The movie controls will be shown or hidden (affects item dimensions)

YouTube player Version 3 (and iFrame) determines which movie to play depending on the size it appears on the page.
