How To Embed a YouTube Video When Building Your Own Website

image of youtubeHaving a video on your website is a great way to engage your visitor and keep them on your site longer.

Storing video in your WordPress media file can take up an enormous amount of space and is not recommended. One of the easiest ways to add a video is to upload it to YouTube and then embed it on your site.

What You Need:

  • A YouTube Account
  • A page or post to where you want the video to be published
  • The link or embed code from YouTube to add to your site


Our short tutorial will walk you through it.



You can also use Vimeo which is another popular video hosting platform. Which do you prefer? Leave a comment and share.
