How to Embed a Youtube Video in WordPress | WordPress Tutorial


This is Ben from WPAnswered.com and by the end of this video, you’ll know how to embed Youtube videos in WordPress. The very first step is to visit the Posts menu and select the post you’d like to add the video to. This method for embedding Youtube videos works the same way for pages too. Just so you know. Next, you can click into the end of a paragraph and then press the Enter key to create a new block. To choose the Youtube embed block, first click on this plus button over here and you’ll see the block selector appear where you can choose what type of content you want to add into your post. Scroll down a little bit and click on the Embed section and you’ll see the Youtube option show up right away. And before I click that, I just want you to see that there are all sorts of embed options here for various social sites and you can also always use this basic embed block here for embedding an iframe into your post. You can also click into the search bar and type out “youtube” to find the Youtube block. And once you click on it, you’ll see this box appear where you can paste in the URL which I’ll do right now by pressing command+v. And then once the URL is input, you can click the Embed button to embed the video. That works great, but you know what? There’s actually an even faster method. For most popular social networks and video sites like Youtube, you can simply paste the URL into an empty block and WordPress will automatically recognize the youtube.com domain and embed the video for you. That’s everything you need to know about embedding Youtube videos in WordPress. And if you learn something new, why not subscribe?
