Share YouTube videos quickly and easily in your post

Youtube Videos are a great way to enhance your blog posts.

You can embed videos from many video services into your posts. To include a video, follow these three simple steps:

  1. Copy a video’s link
  2. Paste it into the WordPress content area
  3. Save your content

1. Copy a YouTube link

Find the video you want to include and copy the URL from your browser’s address bar while you’re viewing the video.

2. Paste it into the WordPress Content Area

Paste it onto a line by itself in the Visual editor on the Post Edit page. Make sure it’s not hyperlinked.

WordPress will automagically turn the link into a video.
