WordPress Youtube video won’t show? Try this

Recently I uploaded a webinar video on how to get your WordPress site running with HTTPS, and when I put the YouTube video URL in the post editor, it did not show up as a video. What gives? I thought WordPress supported oEmbed and all I needed to do was just add the URL.

Try this.

The URL I got when I clicked on “Share” under my video on Youtube.com gave me this url:


That did not work, but this did,


So you keep the unique identifier for your vide, in my case


and add it to this instead,


See if that works!

And let me know.
