I have a website developed using WordPress. I want to put some YouTube videos on the website for people to click on and watch. How do I put a YouTube video on my website? What is the easiest and most effective way to have this done in a few hours? How do I make sure that the link to these videos won’t break off in one or two months’ time?

Wordpress uses plugin for such kind of things or extra functionalities. There are a lot of plugins available, I would suggest you to use this url where description about plugin, installation and screenshots are also available.

I guess adding a YouTube video on your WordPress website is not a hard thing to do. That is according to WordPress support. To insert a YouTube video on your WordPress website, just copy the URL from the web browser’s address bar while you are watching the video. For example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmg2K3ZlxUw. See image.

In your WordPress post/page visual editor, paste the URL in a separate line and WordPress will take care of the rest. For example:

Text text text text text
Text text text text

text text text text text
text text text
text text text text text text
text text text text

Another way of inserting a YouTube video into your WordPress website is to use a shortcode and in this format: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmg2K3ZlxUw]. Inserting the shortcode is done the same way as the previous method. You insert the shortcode in a separate line in your post. The difference when using a shortcode is that, the video is not viewable from the editor unlike in the previous method.

To view the video, you need to publish the post first.
