Compelling content is a must for any website. In today’s online world, that means video, as well as words.
And just like your text-based content, you can even optimize your video for SEO so it drives traffic for your website.
Adding video to a WordPress site can feel like a daunting task if you’ve never done it before or if you tried and had a lot of problems with it in the past.
But WordPress makes it easy to add video to your website now through a number of different embed widgets and services.
Using the native WordPress video embed feature
Note: Before we dive in, it’s important to note that the native WordPress video embed method only works for certain media websites like Instagram, YouTube, Amazon Kindle instant previews, Facebook, Soundcloud, and TED. If you want to embed something else, you’ll need to use the Custom HTML block method we talk about further on.
