How to Embed a Video to your WordPress Post


This tutorial will teach you how to embed a video in WordPress post. If your post is about some song or any demonstrative material then providing the link to the video will divert your visitors to any other video sharing website and they will eventually lose interest on your site. The solution to this is to embed that video to your own post so that they can see the video directly from your page. In wordpress, embedded videos give the same performance as in any video sharing website.

Step #1: Going in the Editor Mode

By default you are in the Visual mode of your Post. To go to HTML editor of your post click on the “TEXT” as shown in the figure.
