The preferred method for including a video on your website is to upload/host it on the appropriate YouTube channel, then add it to your site using the YouTube link.
Unlike images, which are uploaded to your site’s Media Library, videos are added using links or code, if necessary. Uploading a video file to your site directly can lead to hosting, loading and performance issues.
Adding a Youtube Video to Your Site
- Find the share link.
Under the video, click Share and copy that link; you do not need the embed code.
- Paste the share link.
Paste the link in the body of your page where you want it to appear.
Your video should display on your page instantly.
