Adding a YouTube or other Online Video to Your Post

  1. To add an embedded YouTube video to your Post, first copy the whole URL string from your browser while you are on the YouTube video page.
  2. Paste the URL into your Post content area.
  3. Once the Post is published, it will show the video embedded in the Post instead of the link you inserted.
  4. To create a “Featured Image” thumbnail image for a video Post you will need to take a screen capture of the video playing or paused at the appropriate scene. Crop the screenshot image down so it only shows the video frame, not the whole screen.
