    Hi Olle,

    The InsertExternalVideo is not part of the default Editor's tools and if you want to use it you will need to configure the tools for the control manually (either in the markup or a Tools file). You can examine this behavior by switching the different tools files from the configuration of this demo: Telerik ASP.NET Editor Overview

    You can also find useful the following KB article where all set of tools (including the default one) are provided: Default ToolsFile.xml file of RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX

    Is it possible to skip the Toolsfile.xml and add the tool at runtime?

    Hi Olle,

    Yes, you can skip the tools file and define the desired tools directly in the Editor's Tools inner tag:
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server">
        <Tools>
            <telerik:EditorToolGroup>
                <telerik:EditorTool Name="Cut" />
                <telerik:EditorTool Name="Copy" />
                <telerik:EditorTool Name="Paste" />
                <telerik:EditorTool Name="InsertExternalVideo" />
                <%--ETC.--%>
            </telerik:EditorToolGroup>
        </Tools>
    </telerik:RadEditor>

    You will also find useful information on how to add the tools programmatically to the Editor in the following help article: Adding Standard Buttons
