How to Embed Video from Youtube to your WordPress site
While your WordPress site allows you to host video there, I’m a fan of uploading my videos to other hosts and using the embed code to place the videos in WordPress. There are a lot of great options for hosting your video like Schooltube, Youtube and Vimeo. Each have their benefits. This tutorial will show you how to take a video you’ve already uploaded to Youtube and embed it into a WordPress post. While I am not getting into the other sites here, the process is much the same once you find the embed code.

Another option is to go under Settings > Media in your WordPress dashboard. Click on “Auto-embeds” and then set the max width to the max width of your posts.
Then all you need to do is copy and past the YouTube URL into your post and it will embed the video.
Thanks for the tip, Chris. Just tried it and it’s slick as can be. It’s a great, simple solution that is even easier than what I posted above.
