Inserting or Embedding a Video in a Page or Post

When you “insert” video into a page, you are actually linking to a video hosted elsewhere, e.g. YouTube or Vimeo.  Video playback is resource-intensive and can bring a webserver to its knees or crash it.  Be sure to thoroughly read the fine print on a hosting service before you upload the video, particularly regarding copyright infringement, maximum upload size, subtitles for accessibility compliance, and commercial use.

  1. Edit the Page or Post.
  2. Click in the Editor box.
  3. Paste the URL in the editor box. The video appears.
  4. Publish or Update the Page or Post..
