How to embed YouTube videos in Laravel: The easy way

I released a package recently which makes embedding YouTube videos incredibly simple: laravel-embed.

Once it's installed, you simply make use of the included x-embed blade component passing the URL of the video in the url attribute:

<x-embed url="" />

This will render the video in an iFrame. It's responsive out of the box and isn't just limited to YouTube - it also supports Vimeo and a selection of other services.

That's it. Dead simple.

laravel-embed has a bunch of other features too, such as validation rules and being able to set the aspect ratio. See the project docs
