How do I find the ID of a video?

If you play a YouTube video, look at the URL – it will probably looks something like this…

The video ID is the list of letters and numbers after v=, in this case L5Y4qzc_JTg.

If it’s a dailymotion video, the URL looks like to…

You have two way to define de ID of the video.

First, the easier is to copy all characters after the last /, the result is : xlsc12_batman-arkham-city-notre-test-video_videogames

Second, you can clear the video’s title to get the ID, like that : xlsc12
