Add YouTube Videos to your Websites and Web Apps

Agility CMS allows you to easily pull content directly from your YouTube channel into your content items, unlocking a whole new level of engagement.  

What is Agility CMS?

Agility CMS is a Headless Content Management System that enables content editors and website creators to easily add content to any digital property.

What Does Agility CMS do?

A headless CMS enables you to author your content through the RESTful API and deliver that content wherever you need it — not just to a templated website or application.

This process results in the best available digital experience for the end-users of a particular device. Frontend developers can continue developing new functionality for any channel, independent of the core/backend CMS.

What is you YouTube?

YouTube enables users to upload, view and share videos. It uses Adobe Flash video and HTML5 technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including video clips, TV clips, music videos, and amateur content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos.

YouTube offers a variety of features, including playback, uploading, quality and codecs, and 3D video viewing. It also offers users the ability to view its videos on web pages outside their website. The videos on the site are playable on both iOS and Android platforms. Unregistered users can watch videos, while registered users can upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
