How Can I Embed Videos in Wordpress Posts
Published: September 9, 2018

Adding videos to your WordPress website is an easy way to boost user engagement, improve search engine optimization, as well as give your target audience a visual representation of what you're talking about in your posts. While embedding videos to your WordPress posts is fairly simple, there are also further ways to customize your videos to better fit your website template.

The quickest way to embed videos to your WordPress posts is to simply copy and paste your video URL.

  • Step 1: Create a new post - Start off on your WordPress homepage and go to Posts -> Add New
  • Step 2: Copy your video URL - Whether you are working in YouTube or Vimeo, all you have to do is simply copy your URL link at the top of your browser and paste it into your WordPress post. Make sure that you are working in the Visual Editor mode and that you are starting on a new line of text before posting the URL.
  • Step 3: Publish and/or update your post - Once posting the URL into your post, the video should automatically pop up. Add a title and some text for your post. Your video should now be ready for publishing.

As a side note, posts from other social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, can be embedded in the same manner. Just simply copy the URL and paste it into your post.

If you would like more control over certain aspects of your video, you can copy and past the embed code of your video. On both YouTube and Vimeo, you can find the embed code by clicking Share -> Embed. Once you create a new post, open the Text Editor mode and paste the embed code onto a new line.

Your embed code should look something like this:
[embed width="123" height="456"] video URL [ /embed]

You can alter the embed code to change the maximum width and height of your video, as well as a few other visual aspects to better align the video with your post. Switch back into the Visual Editor mode to view how the embed video will look on your post, and publish when you are satisfied with how it looks.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.

I'm very new to the whole idea of having a website / blog. I used Bluehost.com and WordPress.org to create Thepredatorhunter.com and then managed to wreck it. On a Sunday morning I opened chat box with Rich and within a few hours everything was fantastic! This isn't just a company for big biz, if your new and small, The Computer Geek can help you out. In trouble? Stop fretting and start typing in the chat box. You will be glad you did!
