The Easiest Way To Add A YouTube Video In WordPress

WordPress is all about getting your message out to the people who need it.

It’s the same with YouTube video and it can be a great addition to your blog or website.

In my opinion the easiest way to add a YouTube video in WordPress is also the best way. The 8 steps I detail here will also give you the best chance at only displaying related videos from the chanel of the current video.

8 Steps To Add A YouTube Video To Your WordPress Blog Or Website

  2. Click on the “SHARE” button
YouTube Share Button

YouTube Embed Video Options
  1. Click the copy button
  2. In WordPress on the page or post where you want to show the video add a Custom HTML block

  1. Paste in the code you copied

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/mGCHYt2xm3o?rel=0” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen></iframe>

  1. Add “?rel=0” exactly as highlighted in red above so that it will only show related videos from the same chanel. Don’t add the quotes but make sure to put inside the quotes for the src tag

Here’s a video from my post on VPNs

And here is the code for the above video

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/bGEUei-j22I?rel=0” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen=””></iframe>

Notice how I added “?rel=0”
