YouTube is a tool we recommend for hosting videos to embed on your website.
YouTube Embed Code
Method One (URL)
To quickly embed a YouTube video, simply copy the video’s URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the video (example above). Paste it on a line by itself while on the visual tab (make sure that Wordpress does not make it a hyperlink).
Method Two (Embed)
Example <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/I1cUZlM1CRI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
To find the embed code, go to the video that you want to embed.
Click on Share
Copy iframe code
Go to the page you want to place the video into in WordPress
Click on Text (tab next to visual)
Paste iframe code into the text window
If you need to change the size of the video
Click on show more under Embed
Choose a size next to video size
Or choose custom size
Place in either the width or the height and the other will fill in automatically to maintain the aspect ratio. Should keep the video around 550px wide or smaller.
NOTE: Using the Embed method will set the height and width of the video. This means that the video will not scale down appropriately for mobile devices. The URL method should be the primary method of showing video.
