Posting Videos

Here are some quick instructions on how to post videos from Google Drive.

  1. Upload the video to Google Drive.
  2. Right click on the file and click “share”. Click “done”.
  3. Double click the video to play it in Google drive.
  4. While it’s playing click the “more actions” icon (triple dots) in the right hand corner of the browser window. Click “open in new window”.
  5. When the video opens, click the “more actions” icon again and select “embed item”.
  6. Highlight embed code, right click and select “copy”. Paste the embed code in your WordPress post (while on the HTML tab).
  7. Set post format (on the menu on the left side when adding a post) in the WordPress post (on the menu on the left side when adding a post) to “video”.

The code will look something like this
