• Note - This guide is only for sites hosted with WordPress.com. If you self-host your WordPress site, or are using a premium version of WordPress, please refer to our "How do I embed a video?" guide.

To add a video on a WordPress hosted site, you will be using the Share Video URL we provide. WordPress will automatically pull the video from that URL and display it on your site. Your video must be listed as Public for this to work.

  • Navigate to your WordPress admin panel.

  • Select the Add option next to Blog Posts or Pages.

Select Add button

  • Build your page as you desire with a title and content.

  • Copy the Share Video URL from your SproutVideo account and paste that into your WordPress post. Your video must be listed as Public for this to work. Private, Password protected, and Login Protected videos will not work in this manner.

Paste Share Video URL

  • You can click Preview to see what your page will look like or click Publish/Update to save your changes.
