How To Embed Youtube Video In Figma

Figma is a flexible platform that has transformed the field of design. It provides a diverse range of functionalities that simplify and enhance the design process. One valuable feature is the capability to integrate YouTube videos directly into designs. This can be especially beneficial for showcasing design concepts, illustrating ideas, or incorporating interactive multimedia into projects.

In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of embedding a YouTube video into your Figma project step by step.

Step 1: Install the Figma Plugin

Before you can embed a YouTube video into your Figma design, you must first install the HTML Embed plugin. You can find this plugin in the Figma community. Simply search for ‘HTML Embed’ and click ‘Install’ to add it to your Figma.

Step 2: Copy the YouTube Embed Code

Next, you need to get the embed code from the YouTube video that you want to include in your design. To do this, navigate to the YouTube video on your web browser, click ‘Share’ under the video, then select ‘Embed.’ This will open a new window with the video’s HTML embed code. Copy this code to your clipboard for use in the next step.

Step 3: Paste the YouTube Embed Code into Figma

Now that you have the YouTube video’s embed code, you can add it to your Figma design. To do this, open your Figma design and select the frame where you want the video to appear. Then, go to the menu bar, select ‘Plugins,’ then ‘HTML Embed,’ and finally ‘Embed HTML.’

This will open a new window where you can enter the YouTube embed code. Paste the code you copied earlier into this window.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Replace video-ID with the ID of the video you want to embed. The video ID is the part of the YouTube URL that comes after ‘v=.’

Step 4: Resize and Reposition the Video

Once you’ve pasted the embed code, you can now resize and reposition the video to fit your design’s layout. To do this, simply click and drag the edges of the video to resize, and click and drag the video itself to reposition.


And there you have it! You’ve successfully embedded a YouTube video into your Figma design. This feature enables you to enhance your presentations, provide additional context, or simply make your designs more interactive and engaging. So why not give it a try in your next Figma project? Happy designing!
