Using the URL

You embed using a URL by copying the URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the content you want to embed and pasting URL on a line by itself in your post/page editor where you want it to appear.

For YouTube you use the video URL from “Share this video” under the Share option. Only public and “unlisted” videos and playlists can be embedded; “private” videos will not embed.

Video URL

The link will automatically convert into an embed and provide a live preview in your editor.

Video embedded in block editor

If the content can’t be embedded using the URL it loads the embed block in the block editor where you are given an option to try again or convert to a link.

Embed block

In the classic editor it will be added as the URL if the content can’t be embedded.

Classic editor

The link must be on its own line without any characters or whitespaces before or after the URL and must not be hyperlinked (clickable when viewing the post) otherwise it won’t embed.
