How to embed YouTube video on wordpress blogs

I was trying to embed a video in my previous post but after I copied and pasted the url using my html mode to write, the video didn’t appear.

Being a bit technically challenged, I googled “embed video on wordpress blog” and found the answer I was looking for on ShandyKing.com’s blog post titled: Embed YouTube Videos in WordPress.

It was so simple. All I had to do was go to “Users”, then under “Personal Options” unmark or turn off the Rich Text Editor. Then copy and paste the embed url in the blog post again and voila the video appeared like magic.

That just goes to show that everything you need to learn about blogging or just about anything else for that matter can be found on the internet if you look hard enough. *grin*
