FAQ: What is an iFrame?
iframe tag is parsed by the user’s browser.
Website users often come across iframes when trying to embed something from an external source into their site. The most common example of an iframe embed code is the YouTube video embed code which looks like this:
In the above example, the iframe tag loads YouTube’s video player with the video ID provided in the code. It has other parameters defined, such as height, width, frame border, etc. These parameters will be used by the script, which loads the YouTube video player.
