Add Media

We aren’t able to host videos and sound clips directly on our WordPress installation, because of the size of the files. These types of media, however, can be hosted on a service like YouTube and then easily embedded into a post.

  • To embed from YouTube, paste the URL of your YouTube video into the post.  This works best if the link is on its own line.
  • This method works with many different online services, including Vimeo, Spotify, and Soundcloud. Read the full list of compatible media services.
  • Be aware that standard HTML embed code may or may not work with WordPress.
  • You can use these instructions to embed a video stored in your Google Drive:
    1. Open Google Drive
    2. Find the Video file
    3. Set Share Setting to Public on Web
    4. Click the video to preview it.
    5. Click the “More Actions” icon (3 vertical Dots) upper right corner
    6. Select “Open in New Window”
    7. In the new window, click “More Actions” and Select Embed Code
    8. Copy Embed Code
    9. In WordPress, toggle from the “Visual” editor view to the “Text” editor view (top right corner).  Paste in the Embed Code.
