Embedding video in WordPress doesn’t have to hard at all. A lot of people use plugins for this and you don’t have to at all WordPress has an embed feature built in so you don’t even have to deal with extra resources on your blog at all.
Here are a few simple instructions to embed the video
Copy the URL right from the address bar is the best option like the image below.
Now you can use a built in embed code that has been in place since WordPress Version 2.9.
Head over to “Settings” Then Click on “Media” To enable this feature all you have to do is click on the check mark next to auto embed then choose your width and height that you want the videos to be when you just place the link of the video on your WordPress Blog.
There is also another option and that’s using the built in embed code in WordPress itself and I’ll have a link to the code below.
But as you can see you from the image above you can control the width and size of the video anytime by just using the embed code shown on the image above. I prefer to use this code over just inserting the image because I have more control of the size and width of videos that I pull from different video sharing sites and there are a few that sites that you can just pull media from with this code.
Here the list of white listed media sites that WordPress supports using Embedding Video In WordPress feature
- Flickr (both videos and images)
- Google Video
