To embed a YouTube in a post
Simply grab the YouTube URL and paste it into a blank line of your post. WordPress will automatically read it as a video to be embedded and size it appropriately for you.
Just make sure that the URL you choose looks similar to the one below. Delete any ampersands and whatever follows them.
To specify the height and width of your video, you’ll need to surround that URL with embed tags, as shown in the video.
To embed other types of videos in your posts
