Add Media from YouTube

In VIUTube, it is possible to add a YouTube video to your account. Doing so will allow you to create a VIUTube video quiz using that publicly available YouTube video.

Please Note: Adding a YouTube video to your VIUTube account does not create a copy or backup of that video. If the video is deleted or removed from YouTube, the VIUTube version of that video will also become unavailable.
