Restrict embedding

By default, Content Manager users can add YouTube videos to their websites and apps by embedding them. You can control where your videos get embedded by specifying which websites and apps to block or allow. These rules can be applied to videos you own (Licensed content) and videos you claim (User-uploaded content).

Note: Embedding restrictions cannot be applied to iOS apps.
