How to embed youtube videos into your blog (with instructions)

Wikiomni is the best platform for sharing anything you want. A well written blog can contain pictures as a supplement but what if you would like to include a video you shot and uploaded to social media such as youtube or facebook? By simply copying and pasting a url will only render a text string and link you to the video; for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3ltuc8fGlY


This can be easily overlooked or ignored because viewers will not want to open another page in their browser. Luckily, there is a method to overcome this and the steps are show below:


1. For youtube, simplying open the video and look for the share icon and copy the code.

If using facebook, and the video is public, the embed code is located here:

Hope these instructions have been helpful; happy blogging.
