Adding You Tube videos to a post can add so much to the look and feel of your article. Although it is a straightforward process it took me a bit to figure it out. There are only five steps and here they are:
1. Find the video on You Tube that you want to embed in your post.
2. Click the ‘share’ button.
3. Copy the code.
This will allow you to put a sentence underneath the video with a direct link in case some of your readers cannot see the video in your post. You might put something like:
Can’t see the video? Click HERE.
(Simply highlight the word HERE and paste in the link so that they can click directly to You Tube to see the video. This is also what you could do if you wanted to email the link to a friend.)
4. Resize the video if you want.
5. Click the ’embed’ button.
Remember you have to be in the ‘Text’ screen NOT in the ‘Visual’ screen when you copy the code to embed the vido. And don’t worry when only an orange box appears on the ‘Visual’ screen. The video won’t appear until you publish the post.
I still have a long way to go to figuring out how to do things on this blog but I am learning. Hope this helps you get starting with posting video on your site.
