How to Incorporate a YouTube Video Within your WordPress Pages
You can add YouTube videos to either WordPress posts or WordPress pages. Go to the editing section of WordPress by either writing a new entry or managing an existing one.
Now, go back to the WordPress text editor.
In most circumstances, when you first begin to edit a post, you use the “Visual” editor. This allows you to see your formatting changes as you type (for example, bolded text in the editor window is bold in the published entry). When adding a YouTube video, however, you need to temporarily switch over to the “HTML” editor to paste in the YouTube instructions. The button for the HTML editor is on top of the textbox. Click it, and if you had any formatted content in your text box to begin with, you now see it with HTML tags surround by angle brackets (“<” and “>”).
Find an empty line in your text where you want your video to appear and click there to place your text cursor. Now, paste the text string from YouTube that was on the clipboard. Usually control-v (or command-v on a Mac) is the quickest way to do this. You’ll see a long string of HTML text inserted at that point, starting and ending with an <object> tag.
Click on the Visual tab to return to your normal way of editing. Though you will not see your YouTube video immediately, a colored box appears where your video will be inserted. If the position of your video isn’t right, you can return to the HTML editor, cut out the entire <object> string you inserted, and paste it somewhere else.
Once you are ready, you can save your WordPress entry in the normal way and then navigate to the page to see how it turned out. You’re done!
You can add more than one video in a single entry if you like. Just repeat the steps for each video you want to embed.
