    1. NOTE: The video needs to be public. Private videos cannot be linked.
    2. NOTE: You also need to allow external sites to embed and play the video.
  3. After the upload is complete, a snippet of code will be displayed to you for embedding
        a. Example: <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie"
        b. The important part is shown in bold. This is the URL of the video and it is what you will store in your Shape Net installation, using the Add Video function - follow this format
  4. For existing video's find it on YouTube click the share option/Click Embed/Copy the URL that appears in quotes  it will appear something similar to the following.  You will copy the bolded area only when creating/linking your video in Shape.

  5. Link the video in Shape by logging into Shape.Net and navigating to the
