Katie Cross says:

Also, do you have any videos on using headings in posts? IE h1, h2, h3,

I followed your instructions, but the video didn’t show in the preview (of
my post).. I embedded the code in between paragraphs and photos… does it
have to be placed only at the top in order for it to work? I’m not sure
what I’m missing….

Tamara Plant says:

Thank you for this!

Ace Pierre says:

thank you

Doesn’t work for me. For some reason WordPress deletes the embeded code
after I click on “Save Draft”

Michael Quinn says:

Any way to do this so the video size is responsive on a mobile device?

I find if I put a video on my site, it looks great there, but then the
preview is way too big on my phone.

Dawn WeCallItJunkin says:

Thanks so much for posting this, worked perfectly

Ann Young says:

Hello, great video. I have a question. I am new at this so please be
patient. I followed your instructions but whatever I enter into my text box
appears in my video box. I get the embedded code in both sections but no
video. When I hit preview, I only see the code. Please help me.

You’re very welcome! Glad you know how to put videos in your WordPress
posts now. 🙂

Strive4impact says:

Good! I’m glad this was helpful for you!

Strive4impact says:

On the embed tab, there are check boxes below. One of them says show
suggested videos when video finishes. Just uncheck that box, the embed code
changes, and grab the new embed code. Or, if you know where it goes, you
can add &rel=0 at the end of the YouTube URL for your video. Let me know if
you’d like me to make a video to show that. Thanks!

Strive4impact says:

&autoplay=true. Add this line of code to the URL or web address of the
embedded video.

Dak Meng says:

Thanks for this mate, helped a lot! 😀 Btw, any idea to not start video
automatically? Because it auto-start when browsing my blog. Thanks again! 🙂

That is a great video.. How do you stop the youtube video loading the next
movies after your that normally appear on you tube? I have embedded the
movie and after it finishes it loads the next movie from youtube.. Thanks

Hamdi Khalif says:

Brilliant! Thank you 😀

Strive4impact says:

Are videos not loading on your tablet, or are you trying to make sure
videos will show on tablets when you embed them into your website?

LKCampaign says:

I love you dude 😀

10 years old is a great time to get started. Watch the video a couple of
times and see if you can figure out how to post a video in your WordPress
