Our band has been capturing stuff on videos for a while, and it's super easy for them to put them up on YouTube. YouTube has been perfect for them, and they want to keep using that, but they also want people to be able to find those videos on their site. In this lesson we'll create a new video content type and set it up to use remote media with the Media Internet Sources module, which comes with the Media package. When we add our video field to the content type we will not be configuring it for upload, which is what we used for the audio files on our albums. This configuration, with Media Internet Sources and the Media YouTube module, will allow our users to simply copy and paste in a YouTube URL or embed code to get a playable video on our site. In the process of working with the Media YouTube module, we'll also take our first dip into the Media file type display settings to make sure our video preview doesn't break our editing experience.
Note: This series is covering Media Module version 1.x. To learn about Media Module 2.x, check out our Using Drupal Chapter 4: Media Management series.
