A video can be embedded in any page or post. In order to do so, the video must first be uploaded to YouTube. There are two ways to add videos to a page that will display differently on the page:

  1. Adding a video by URL: this method will display a full sized video on your page. It’s ideal for adding single videos to your page. See an example of videos added by URL.
  2. List Videos: this option displays videos in a collection and is best for displaying multiple videos on your page. See an example of a video listing.

Like many types of content, adding videos to your homepage is a different process. See the homepage training page for instructions.
