I’ve just started creating videos on my YouTube Channel and I wanted to embed the latest YouTube videos from my channel to the blog.
Apart from embedding them in the blog posts that complement the videos, putting them at the bottom of every post or in the sidebar of your blog can get some more exposure.
One method is to put embed codes manually every time there is a new video on the channel.
Here are the steps involved.
- Step 1: Grab the Embed Code of the latest Video
- Step 2: Open your blog and paste the videos somewhere at the bottom or in the sidebar with the help of Widgets or Plugins (like QUADS)
- Step 3: Save changes.
- Step 4: Repeat the entire process whenever you post a new video.
I agree that it won’t take much of your time.
But, let’s face it, who wants to add one more task to the already filled day of a blogger?
So, I sat down to figure out the best way to automatically embed videos from YouTube channel and finally got a solution.
I did find a solution and was excited to share it with you guys, but sadly it stopped working.
So, I started finding another way, and I came to know about this site called feed.mikle.com, it lets you create an RSS feed link of your YouTube channel and creates a widget for you that you simply need to embed into your blog.
It’s really simple to do it if you too want to embed YouTube videos automatically on your WordPress blog.
The code looks something like this
Now your job is to find your the Channel llink, this is easy to find, You can move over to your YouTube channel and check out the URL in the address bar.
Is must be something like this,
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7ejwRVWG1RC7ZcPfRtgsQQ?sub_confirmation=1 ←this is the link to my channel.
You can use the QUADS plugin to put this code and select to use it at the end of the post.
Here is how it looks on the blog.
With this method, you won’t have to spend 5 minutes of your life updating the embed codes every you publish a video on YouTube.
Note: Free accounts put a link at the bottom of the widget.
