Videos are also very appealing in blog and media operations.

This article shows you how to embed a YouTube video in your WordPress media.

It is easy as long as you understand the contents!

Now we’re going to move on to the actual method, but once you learn the contents, you can upload videos very easily.




The premise of this article is to prepare any videos in “YouTube” and run media in “word press”.

Now, let’s move on to the explanation.


How to embed YouTube videos

First, open the word press management screen. From Post > Add New in the main menu of the management screen, open the edit screen of the article you want to embed a movie in.

There are several ways to insert YouTube videos, so I will explain one by one.


Copy and paste a YouTube URL

The quickest and easiest way is to copy and paste a URL.

When you copy and paste a link in “visual tab”, it will be automatically loaded and the YouTube screen will be displayed as shown below.

This is very simple, but it’s self-adjusting on the page, so you can’t specify the size.


Use the YouTube embed code

The most customizable way is to use this YouTube embedded code.

Play the video on YouTube (The image is a PC browser.)

Click the Share button to display the sharing method selection modal.

Click “embed” whose code icon is the landmark.

When you click it, the following screen appears.

You can edit the code circled in orange to adjust the size, etc.

To adjust the size, edit the following in the code ;

<iframe width=”Include Width Pixels”Include pixels of height” src=”” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen></iframe>


Then paste it into the text editor screen.

You can now switch to the visual editor and see that it is displayed at the specified size.


For example, if you want a square, let’s say you set it to 450 × 450.

<iframe width=“450” height=“450” src=”” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen></iframe>


Paste this code.

You can see the square reflected in the visual mode.
