5. To add a video, first open the YouTube app and find one you'd like to embed on your Insta website. Tap the Share symbol:

6. Tap on the Youtube URL, to bring up more optionss

7. Select Copy

8. Jump back to the Milkshake app. Tap the edit symbol to replace a demo video , or tap + to add a brand new video embed to the Card

9. Paste the link copied from YouTube into the URL field then tap Done

10. Add as many videos as you want. When you're done, tap Preview and Publish.
