    Hi Tom,

    I need to insert a video on the blog, how is it done?

    What do you mean man ^_^ Where do you need that video ?

    Is it a Youtube video you want to embed ?

    Or do you have the video inside your PC ?

    If it’s a Youtube video, you can just paste the link inside the WordPress visual editor.

    Or use this shortcode, it should work.


    Change the URL to your video, and change the W for width and H for Height as you wish.

    More info here :


    If you have a file on your PC… well you can add it as media I think but with a 64 MB limit, which is small.

    I suggest you first create an account with Youtube or DailyMotion, upload your video there, make it private if you need to, and then embed it on your blog.

    Good luck

    Change the width and height to what you desire.

    Not into the visual editor. Into the text editor.


    Thanks, Adrian!

    I don’t get it why my codes don’t show…

    I just couldn’t get the code showing without using the spaces. Remove the spaces in the []
    I hope you can see the code now.

    Did you get it fixed ?

    bbPress doesn’t like shortcodes.

    Try adding spacing between square brackets just to show in here:
