How to embed Youtube videos in Wordpress?

Adding Youtube videos in Wordpress is quite easy. You do not need to download the video and then upload it on your blog or website. Simple copying of URL will do the trick.

Method 1

Follow the steps given below to embed Youtube videos in your Wordpress blog or website.

Step 1: Open the video that you want to embed.

Step 2: Copy the video’s URL and paste it on your blog.

The video is now embedded, as you can notice from the screenshot.

There are a few points that you should note:

  • You will have to ensure that the video is not hyperlinked.

That’s it! You can now view the video after you have published the post.
