Have you realized that inserting videos into your blog can be quite profitable? Then you will wonder how to put them in your entries.
What will you learn here?
Example of an embedded video on my blog
This is a video embedded in an entry. As you can see, it has all the features as if it were on the original page. You can even play it in fullscreen mode.
How to insert a video into a WordPress article?
To embed a specific video you do not need to install any plugin. Simply paste the URL of the video in the place where you want it to appear. Be careful not to leave any space in front of or behind the URL.
This works with all major online video platforms like YouTube, Dailymotion or Vimeo.
Yes, that is everything you need to do in order to incorporate the video in such a way that your visitors can reproduce it without leaving your blog (and, above all, to make money thanks to the ads that appear).
Where can you find the URL of the video?
Basically, you have two options:
- Visit the page with the video and copy its URL from the address bar of your browser.
- Several online video platforms offer a shorter URL. In this case, I do not think it is better (or worse) than the original URL. However, if you prefer to use it, look under the video for links like share.
