Stephen,

Yes you can. I have copied very good instructions from another post. I hope this helps!

Can I embed third party objects on my site, such as music or videos?

Answer: Yes. You can easily embed objects from any other web site, such as videos, music, slideshows, reunion countdown clocks, and much more. An example site with third party embedded slideshows and music can be seen here: Broken Arrow High School Class of 1988.

You can generate third party objects on numerous sites, but here are a few of the major sites to get you started:


One True Media - one of our favorites. Allows you to create stylish and professional-looking video montages quickly and easily online from your digital photos and video.
You Tube - embed your own video from You Tube, or any other video on the You tube web site.
Playlist.com - easily add music to your web site. (Note: If you wish to add music to your home page you must select Playlist.com's narrow player.)
Photobucket - create your own slide shows and embed them in your site.
Flickr - another popular slide show creator.
Slide.com - and another popular slide show creator.
Issuu - publish dynamic "turn the page" publications on your web site. Very slick! Some schools use this to publish their entire yearbook on their Class Creator web sites. See Pennsauken High School Class of 1983 for an example.
WishAFriend - look under the MySpace Fun Stuff column, and click on the "Flash Toys" option. All of these objects will work perfectly on your Class Creator web site. The sky's the limit on what you can create here.
iBegin Weather - add the local weather to your site
Countdown Clock - add a reunion countdown clock to your site.
SiteMeter - add a visitor counter to your home page or other page of your site.
addonChat - add a real time chat feature to your site and talk to your Classmates live. Our favorite.
Everywhere Chat - another real time chat system you can easily add to your site.
IMchat - another chat room option.
Widgetbox - choose from hundreds of objects you can embed on your site.
PagePlugIns - more fun stuff you can put on your Class Creator web site.
The general procedure for embedding third party objects is as follows:


At the third party web site generate the code for your object, then select and copy the code.
Return to your Class Creator web site and enter edit mode for the page on which you wish to embed the object.
Click your mouse on the exact location on your page where you wish for the embedded object to appear.
Click the "Source" button to toggle over to source code view (the Source button is located at the upper left corner of your editor).
Paste the code that you previously copied in Step #1.
Click the "Source" button again to toggle back to design view. Note: You will not see the third party embedded object in the Class Creator editor.
Save you page.
Preview your page live. You will now see the embedded object on your page.
NOTE ABOUT THE SIZE OF PLAYLIST.COM PLAYLISTS AND OTHER EMBEDDED OBJECTS: Most embedded objects will fit fine on any sub pages of your web site, however, your home page is divided into two columns and embedded objects that are too large will "blow out" the formatting of your home page and/or cross over other elements on the right side of your page. If you put an embedded object on your home page or Announcement Board do not use objects over 270 pixels wide. If you are embedding PlayList.com Playlists (width 435) you can easily change the size of your embedded player by following these steps:

After pasting your Playlist.com source code identify all widths and heights that are specified in the code (there are several instances of them so be sure to identify all instances).
Change ALL widths and ALL heights to 270. Then save your page.
Your Playlist will now fit perfectly on your home page without interfering with the formatting.
