DocuTube is a utility addon which finds YouTube links in the document and adds them to a popup window right in the doc when run.
Google Docs do not allow you to embed videos. Rather than jumping in and out of your document each time you click a video link, DocuTube automatically creates an embedded YouTube video in a popup using the links already in the document.
It reads any type of YouTube link including links in images.
Note that Google Drawings are not supported at this point due to limitations in Google’s code.
If you run into strange errors or weird issues, leave a comment on this page. I’ve tested as much as I can on a variety of documents, but something is sure to slip through. I’ll reply here with fixes, so be sure to subscribe.
