How to Add a YouTube Video

Different versions of WordPress and different plugins handle embedding videos differently. You can typically add a YouTube by doing the following.

  1. Visit the video you want to embed on YouTube.
  2. Click “Share” and then “Embed” to get your <iframe> code.
  3. Adjust the <iframe> width and height if needed (check your site guide for ideal widths and heights).
  4. Copy the <iframe> and paste it into your post or page in the Text view.
  5. Click “Update.”

Contact your account manager if your YouTube video is not embedding correctly.

Example: 600 by 400 <iframe>

<iframe> width="600" height="40" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/h3h--K5928M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
