Is it possible to embed a YouTube video into a SKUID page?  I tried using a Template with an iframe, no luck there. 

How would this best be accomplished? 

I am just getting started with SKUID.

Figured it out using a custom component - looks something like this:

1. Created JavScript Resource - Named introVideo

skuid.componentType.register('introVideo',function(element){
    element.css('width','600px').css('height','400px');
    element.html(
         '<iframe width="600px" height="400px" src="YOUTUBE VIDEO URL"; frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>'
    );

});

2. Added Custom Component with ComponentType set to introVideo

Seems to work,  Not sure if that was the correct approach, but its working.

Hey Jason, that's so cool that you made a custom component!  It should also work with a template in an iframe, make sure you check "allow HTML" for your template. I just got it to work via a template, so let me know if you are still having problems. I used the embed html provided by youtube:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fh0NLQJfAYU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Issue may have been that you were using HTTP instead of HTTPS?

<skuidpage unsavedchangeswarning="yes" showsidebar="true" showheader="true">   <models/>
   <components>
      <template multiple="false" model="" allowhtml="true">
         <contents>&lt;object data="https://www.youtube.com/embed/uVD3KPUnKHk";
   width="560" height="315"&gt;&lt;/object&gt;</contents>
      </template>
   </components>
   <resources>

      <javascript/>
      <css/>
   </resources>
</skuidpage>
