Embedding Video onto a Page

  • 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:

    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.
