Embeding a youtube video

How do I embed a youtube video with the advanced privacy mode in the free version of rocketcake? Simply inserting the code into the properties of an iframe does not work.

Example code:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Don't use RocketCake's iFrame insert, but the HTML Code insert. Drag a HTML Code insert from the Toolset into the editor window.)*
Right-click and select Edit Code. Paste the embedding code string into the white field. Click OK. Click Preview to check that it works.

)* To ease your layout work you can size the HTML Code insert according to what the embedding code says.

You can still get RocketCake Pro at a -40% price. The New Year special offer expires in about 1 hour.

Apart from that: To my understanding the privacy-enhanced mode prevents from cookies only as long as the viewer does not interact with the video, i.e. if the viewer plays the video a cookie will be set anyway.

Embedding YouTube videos in privacy-enhanced mode does not mean there is no risk of conflict with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation. That's for 2 reasons:
1. The viewer's IP must be forwarded to the hoster of the external content and if the content is hosted on a server outside the EU, i.e. out of reach of the GDPR, this can be critical from a data protection point of view if the viewer has not been made aware of it.
2. The privacy-enhanced mode does not prevent from cookies. I have just tried it out. Even just loading the page with the embedded video sets a cookie from (how funny is that?), and playing the video sets another one.
Also, when playback finishes, there are videos on similar subjects being proposed for viewing.

So if your website is hosted in the EU you better have viewers confirm a cookie consent upfront, and your privacy policy statement should include YouTube services.
