Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Most music videos cannot be uploaded to Wikipedia because of copyright restrictions. However, it is permissible to link to videos if they are hosted on a site that has licensed them for online viewing. Use this template to add a music video link to an infobox created by {{Infobox song}}.

Usage

This template is used with the |misc= parameter of the infobox template. It should not be used on its own. If this template is substituted, it will return a cleaned-up copy of itself with unnecessary parameters removed and deprecated parameters replaced. Parameter indentation will also automatically be fixed.

Code

Music video
{{Infobox song
...
| misc         = {{subst:External music video
 | type        = 
 | header      = 
 | 1           = 
}}
type 
Enter single to produce a khaki header or song for light blue for other Infobox song types, so that the headers will have a consistent color.
header 
Enter the text for the header. If not used, the default is Music video. For no header, enter |header=no. For multiple music video links, set the first to |header=Music videos and the succeeding links to |header=no, so only one header for all will be created (see Example 2).
Enter the video link, plus the song title in quote marks, followed by the name of the video site (see Example 1). For YouTube links, use {{YouTube}}, instead of [http: ...] (see Example 2).

Examples

{{Infobox song
...
| misc         = {{subst:External music video
 | type        = song
 | header      = Music video
 | 1           = [http://www.cmt.com/videos/johnny-cash/26385/hurt.jhtml "Hurt"] at CMT.com
}}
{{Infobox song
...
| misc         = {{subst:External music video
 | type        = single
 | header      = Music videos
 | 1           = {{YouTube|qzU9OrZlKb8|"Till the World Ends"}}
}}{{subst:External music video
 | type = single
 | header = no
 | 1 = {{YouTube|M3Lqg-46mDo|"Till the World Ends" (dance version)}}
