All you have to do is to copy the embed code of the youtube video of your choice and then paste it in the HTML Markup taskflow using Composer.
Detailed steps along with the snapshot is as follows :
STEP 1 : Create a new page or Edit an existing page using Composer
STEP 2 : From Composer, Click on 'Add Content', Select 'Web Development' and click on '+ Add' link next to 'HTML Markup' to add HTML or java script on to the page.
STEP 3 : Access video on Youtube, click on Share -> Embed and copy the embed code. For testing purpose I've used 'Pharrell Williams - Happy song'
STEP 4 : Goto Composer page again. Click Edit Icon of HTML Markup to open Component Properties window. Paste the embed code. Click Apply and Click OK for the changes to take effect and to exit from Component Properties window.
STEP 5 : Renders youtube video on Composer
STEP 6 : Click Save and close to save the changes and exit Composer such that you can view the Youtube video embedded inside a page. Now the youtube video renders on a WebCenter Portal page and works as expected.
Note : In this blog post, HTML Markup taskflow is used to copy/paste a youtube embed code to render a youtube video on Oracle WebCenter Portal page. Similarly any HTML or java script code can be embedded inside a page using the HTML Markup taskflow.
