How Do I Add Video to My Blog Post?

-

This has been a popular question lately, so I thought I’d answer it on the blog to serve as a quick reference for anyone having trouble loading video onto a Word Press blog. Here is a quick 5 step process for loading video into your Word Press blog:

  1. Load the video into your YouTube account. Make sure you add appropriate tags and a description so that you get the maximum syndication value from YouTube.
  2. Click on the YouTube  embed code and copy the code. The code will look something like this: <object width=”640″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/LKiOQ9yG7xQ&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/LKiOQ9yG7xQ&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”640″ height=”385″></embed></object>
  3. Within the body of your blog post, switch to the HTML view and past the video where you want it to appear.
  4. Go back to the Visual editor and your should see a square where the video will appear.
  5. Add appropriate key word rich copy and click publish to enjoy watching your video.
