How to embed a video in a page

Hello! So you’d like to embed a video in one of your pages.

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Verify your video has captions available. Real ones, not just auto-generated ones.

  2. Copy the short url for the video from YouTube or Vimeo.

3. Paste it into the body of your post on the editing side.

This is a gif of what should happen when you paste a video url into a post. The video will basically pop into your editing area.

The video then appears on your page after you either publish it or update a previously published page.
