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:

https://youtu.be/IxcJGgx9V94

That did not work, but this did,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxcJGgx9V94

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

IxcJGgx9V94

and add it to this instead,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

See if that works!

And let me know.
