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.

I do not often write reviews however I felt I should with Computer Geek. I have a fair knowledge of servers and php code that I have built up since 2003. I had spent some days trying to get a new bit of stock control software to work. Having narrowed down what was causing the problem and with a few alterations managed to bring the entire site down. I am laughing about it now but 20 minutes ago I was almost sick. Having spent an hour trying to fix it or undo the damage with no success, I contacted Richard and within 2 minutes the site was up and running and within 10 minutes the bit of software I had been trying to get to work now works. Thank you again Richard

Due to the positive experience we had with Mr. Ric
Due to the positive experience we had with Mr. Rich Agnew project manager, I am writing this unsolicited strong recommendation on behalf of Mr. Rich Agnew who is a project manager at The Computer Geek Company. It is a genuine pleasure to write this unsolicited letter for Mr. Rich Agnew, who is an exceptional and talented person who has repeatedly helped us with our website that stop working with Go Daddy. Before meeting and talking to Rich Agnew, we had a horrible experience with trying to find assistance in repairing our website. No one would help, they wanted to rebuild the entire website for thousands of dollars, their estimate of costs was so unreasonable we were just going to shut down the website, we felt we could not trust anyone because of what seemed to us was smoke and mirrors, and a lack of follow-up on calling us back. Despite not knowing Mr. Rich Agnew for only a brief time, I can firmly say in all the 40 years of my practice, Rich has been consistently trustworthy with his judgment and exceptionally speedy with the completion of the project. I feel I can apply a reliable yardstick in assessing Rich, especially since I was a Professor in the Doctoral Program at Nova University School of Professional Psychology for over 12 years. I have published over 40 scientific articles, written a book, have been in practice for over 40 years as a licensed psychologist in the state Florida, I have been a member of over 15 insurance networks in which I specialize in the treatment of children, adults, seniors and cancer patients. Finally, at the age of 69 you can imagine how many issues I have dealt with in my life and homes. Rich is the first project manager I have ever written an unsolicited letter of recommendation. In our transactions with Rich Agnew, he has always impressed us with his expertise, competence, and his handling difficult problems. He provided all the options, recommended the best option, and carried through the project better than we expected; this is extremely rare in our society. He is mature, handled all the computer and website problems, he is dedication and has excellent corporate skills; he is caring and has an exceptional high ethical standard. I may regret ever saying all this because then he will be moved. I highly recommend Rich Agnew without any reservations. Furthermore, I know we will be contacting him yet again because of his superb excellence and honesty.

The computer geeks are gifted editors who strives
The computer geeks are gifted editors who strives to add excellence into all the work they do. They have worked with me on a pitch project for my comic book and I re-hired them to work with me on a feature film, CRY. The film genre was found footage so editing was a serious undertaking in order to change the film from watchable to enjoyable. They were patient with re-edits, fair and professional in their invoices, and added their own unique take on the film's final look. I would hire them again, in fact I plan on doing so in the near future.

Rich, you're the best! You kept this about the project, not the $$$. Your price was extremely fair. My site was down-for-the-count; and you got it back up within one hour of my initial call. I hope I don't come off racist, but it was great to hear someone who can speak english on the other end of my call. You understood my dilemma and fixed it! I'm keeping your number, buddy! Thanks again.
