Embedding Video onto a Page (2 posts)

    I can't seem to get the standard embed to work. I looked it up on codex.wordpress/Embeds....
    It said you can just put the URL onto the page and the video will show up. I can't get this to work. Here is what I tried, both on visual and on Text:

    https://vimeo.com/37675254

    I also tried http://vimeo.com/37675254

    They either just show up as text or as a link, not the embedded video that is supposed to show up.

    Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Be sure to paste the URL while the editor is in Text mode, NOT Visual. Most likely you're in Visual mode and are pasting a full HTML link. If you switch to Text, you'll only paste a plaintext URL, which will work for the auto-embed.
