How do I include a video in my post or page?

Just write the video URL on your page. You can copy the URL from the location bar when watching the video. If this does not work for you, then you can use a single tag to embed your video.

To use a tag, all you need is the video ID.

How do I find the DailyMotion video ID?

On DailyMotion URLs, the video is located after /video/ and before the video title.

For example: in the DailyMotion URL, the video ID is x4qp6y. To embed this video on your post, write [daily x4qp6y] for wide videos, or [dailytv x4qp6y] for square videos.

How do I find the YouTube video ID?

On YouTube URLs is easier to find the video ID. Is just the last string after the equal sign.

For Example: in the YouTube URL the video ID is nNJs8RMiK28. To post this video, just write the tag in your post content.

How do I find the Google Video ID?

For Google Videos, watch the video URL. The video ID is the document ID. This is the long number after docid=

If you see docid=5853961599944034663 in the URL, then the video ID is 5853961599944034663. Be carefull as some ID’s start with minus “-” sign.
