Best way to embed Youtube videos?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have advice on adding Youtube videos by url?

 

I tried using mediabox.....but it doesn't seem to be the correct way at going with this.

Create a new page in wordpress

 

Add your HTML code for the embedded video in to the word press page

 

Drop the page in the section you want using DMS.

 

This will limit some things like sizing I am sure but this will do what you are asking if you do not needed to do anything to fancy.

or...

 

Add a MediaBox section to your page. Click edit and add your YouTube embed code into the "Text and Embed HTML" box. See screenshot.

Hi,

 

If you want to embed the a video, you should use the embed code provided by the video service. Add the code to the Text and Embed HTML field like click recommended above.

Thanks to everyone for your replies. The embed code is working. I placed it in a text box.

myfox23 Hi,

 

Seeing that the provided responsive video shortcode documentation is so vague that you might as well bang your face against the screen for a few hours I would like to show you the actual code you need to use:

 

follow the documentation for the id

 

For Vimeo:

[pl_video type="vimeo" id="53914149"]

 

For Youtube:

[pl_video type="youtube" id="YnjDIANRA4w"]

 

Good luck.
