YouTube and WordPress

This post is just a short one to let you know something about how YouTube and WordPress work together.

One of the problems with WordPress is that it has limited data space. And one of the biggest space users is video. It wouldn’t take many videos to burn up all your space. Lucky for you there is an answer.


Basically YouTube can be your space saver. WordPress lets you link directly to the video and make it appear as if it was uploaded to your blog/website.

Step 1 is that you will need a Google account here. It’s free and easy to set up.

Step 2 is set up a YouTube account at the same site. Once again it’s free and easy to do.

Once you have setup your account you just upload your video and it’s ready to go. YouTube have a few restrictions on your videos, but nothing that isn’t easy to work around.

Okay, now that you are done that, just post the link into one of your posts or pages. WordPress automatically will put the YouTube video there for you to see. Here’s an example below (not my video) of a video of my favorite night show.

I did that by just entering “”

How easy is that!
