Embed YouTube Subscribe Widget in Rafflecopter

Embedding YouTube Subscribe Widget in Rafflecopter
Following an earlier Rafflecopter usage improvement tip for bloggers, here's a new one.

Did you know that you can embed the YouTube subscribe widget right inside Rafflecopter so that someone can subscribe without having to leave the Rafflecopter entry form/widget? As seen in the picture above, it is really easy and a big improvement for those entering your giveaways.
YouTube Subscribe Setup
Just place the below code in Rafflecopter as shown above, replacing <username> with the actual YouTube username, leaving off the < and >, too.
<iframe id="fr" src="http://www.youtube.com/subscribe_widget?p=<username>" style="overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;" scrolling="no" frameBorder="0"></iframe>
Yes, it is that easy.

    1. Did you replace all of with the username you wanted? What error did you get?

    1. It worked in 2013. I don't use Rafflecopter any more. Perhaps they changed things in the two years since.
