How to Embed Youtube Video in Your WordPress Post?

Sometimes you want to include a youtube video in your wordpress post. To make your post more interesting or to show something in the video. Then, how do you do it?

Since WordPress version 2.9, they allow us to embed Youtube video in a simple way. Without any tools or scripts.

Just as simple as copy-and paste the Youtube URL in your post. But you have to put in a new line.

Step 1: Paste your Youtube url into editor like this.

Step 2: wait a second, the video will shows up in your post.

Then continue writing your post.

But, what if you want to show only the URL without embedding the video?

You can put word(s) before the URL, then WordPress will not convert it into video.

In fact, this kind of feature not only applied for Youtube video. But also video from some famous social media platform:

  • Facebook video (and also, photos and posts)
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • Spotify
  • Tumblr
  • Vimeo
  • Scribd
  • Slideshare
  • Flickr
  • Giphy
  • Hulu
  • Imgur
  • Photobucket
  • Reddit
  • Kickstarter

Just make sure you have the latest WordPress copy. You will have them all.

That’s all, enjoy.
