Embed a Youtube Video in your Markdown

Inspired by gatsby-remark-embed-youtube


  1. Install plugin to your site:
npm i gatsby-remark-embed-video

yarn add gatsby-remark-embed-video
  1. Add following to your gatsby-config.js:

    plugins: [      
        resolve: "gatsby-transformer-remark",
        options: {
          plugins: [
            resolve: "gatsby-remark-embed-video",
            options: {
              width: 800,
              ratio: 1.77, // Optional: Defaults to 16/9 = 1.77
              height: 400, // Optional: Overrides optional.ratio
              related: false, //Optional: Will remove related videos from the end of an embedded YouTube video.
              noIframeBorder: true //Optional: Disable insertion of <style> border: 0

Note: if you also rely on gatsby-remark-responsive-iframe, you have to define the embed-youtube plugin first:

plugins: [

Note: you can style the videoIframe using .embedVideoIframe

  1. Restart gatsby.
