How do you embed a video?

To embed a video or another object into a post or page, place its URL into the content area. Make sure the URL is on its own line and not hyperlinked (clickable when viewing the post).

For example:


Check out this funny clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd4fj9Efl4s

Now that was funny!

 

WordPress will automatically turn the URL into a YouTube embed and provide a live preview in the visual editor.
