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 to 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’ button next to ‘Site Pages’ or ‘Blog Posts.’
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.
You can click ‘Preview’ to see what your page will look like or click ‘Publish’ to save your changes.
