In the Checks step, your video is checked for any copyright infringements by YouTube. If there is no problem, click on Next.
In the Visibility step, click “Public” to make the video visible to everyone, then copy the Video Link to put it on the Video URL of Magento. Finally, click on “Publish” to complete the process.
Step 2: Link to Video
In this step, add the video to your site and everything will be set! To do this:
Navigate to Catalog > Products
Select the product that you want to add the video to its content.
Scroll down and expand “Content”, then click on “Description”.
In the left sidebar menu under Layout, click a row and drag it to add it to the description.
Then click a video under Media and drag it to add it to this row. After that, click on Edit.
In the Edit video section, for Video URL, enter the link you previously copied from YouTube, then click “Save”.
You can see your video has been added to the content.
Now click “close full screen”.
