How to email a Youtube video? How to insert a Youtube video into an email? How to embed a Youtube video? How to send a Youtube video via email?

Often times you want to email a video that you’ve seen on YouTube, or even better, you want to create a massive video email marketing campaign based on a YouTube video and send it to your entire mailing list.


YouTube gives you the possibility to “Share”, “Insert” or ” Email” from its own site. But if you choose the option “Email”, all you can do is send an email with a picture linked to the video on YouTube. Not bad, but you can not use this for mass emailing nor does the video play inside email inbox.
