oEmbed method is a protocol allowing for embedding videos, text, images, etc., by providing the source URL to embed the targeted media. There’s no need for any coding knowledge for this process.
First, you need to go to YouTube. Then you have to find the video for embedding. Now, you have to copy the URL of the video from the URL bar. Next, you have to go to your visual editor in WordPress and paste the URL of the video. Then WordPress will embed the video.
This method allows customizing how videos will be on posts or pages. Firstly, on a YouTube video, you have to select the ‘Share’ option above the subscribe button. Then, you have to select ‘Embed.’
Now, you will have some option boxes and the iframe code. In the first box, you will embed the YouTube video starting at a particular time. You can see the video first and pause at any desired time; thus, you can adjust the time. You can also add the player controls like play or pause, volume, fast-forward button, etc., by checking other boxes.
Now, you have to copy the Iframe code. After that, you will go to the visual editor in WordPress. You have to select the text mode from the visual mode and then paste the embedded code.
You can also embed videos in the sidebar of your WordPress site. Embedding videos is a regular and essential part of running your WordPress site. We hope these instructions on embedding videos have helped you to learn the process of embedding videos in your WordPress site.
