What is the best way to embed videos in WordPress?

embed, embed videos

You can add movies straight to your WordPress site, but we always advise against it.

You should instead use a video hosting site such as YouTube or Vimeo. Copy the video URL after you’ve uploaded your video to one of these services.

Return to your WordPress site and paste the video URL directly into the post editor. WordPress will get the embed code and display your movie automatically.

A plugin can also be used to embed video streams, galleries, and other content.
