  • The embed media button (looks like a strip of film) is gone. How to I embed a video from YouTube now? I tried using the “Insert from URL” in the media library, but all I got was a hyper-link. The media manager seems to have changed significantly 🙁 I also need to embed an uploaded video too. Do I now need a plugin to do these two things?

  • When you are on youtube, just cut and paste the address into a post. No need to use ‘add media’.

    OK – that works for YouTube videos. How do I upload say an mp4 video and insert it into a post? I tried several ways and I can’t get it to play on the page. Do I need a video player plugin? This used to work without one — in 3.5 — now in 3.5.1 it no longer works.

    If the video is on your site, yes, look for a plugin – there are many options. Look for a current and widely used one for best likelihood of it working well.
