WordPress provides an easy system for adding embedded video from YouTube, Vimeo, and others.

Adding embedded video from YouTube:

  • Login to your website backend
  • Go to the post or page where you want to insert the video
  • Open a new browser tab, and go to the YouTube video page of the video you wish to insert (eg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nrDsfT5rNw )
  • Click the “Share” button below the video player, and select “Embed”
  • Select the embed code (Something like <iframe width=….) and copy this to the clipboard
  • Go back to the WordPress backend, and select the “Text” tab to go into the code view
  • Paste the video code into the correct place
  • Preview the page, and then publish if you are happy
