When embedding YouTube videos in WordPress, sometimes only the link will appear. This occurs when the video has been copied from another webpage and already has formatting applied. When looking at the post on Text editor view, the link can be seen with tags wrapped around it.
Here is a video with a quick solution to this problem:
Easy Two Step Instructions:
- Windows: press Control + A to select all the text
Mac: Press Command + A to select all the text
- Select “Clear formatting” located either under the Format tab or on the editing bar.
- Update the post.
Now view your updated post to see your fixed YouTube videos.
