Vimeo videos can be easily integrated into your WordPress companion blog by following these steps:
- Visit Vimeo and find a video you would like to insert. Copy the URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the video.
- Insert the shortcode into a new post or page using the format shown below (in the Visual tab).
- Make sure to replace the URL with the one you are using (also make sure the URL starts with "http" and not "https"):
Under the Settings tab >> Media section you will also need to check the Maximum embed size.
If the width is set to "0" then the vimeo integration will not be successful. You can set the width to a maximum of 660 px.
After publishing you can see the video embedded into your blog.
You Tube videos can be integrated in the same way.
