What does it mean?

Vidembed adds a way to quickly and easily add videos to pages, posts, and widget areas. This plugin allows you to embed videos for both self-hosted videos as well as YouTube and Vimeo.


Add a video a post and page

When the VidEmbed plugin is activated on your site it adds a shortcode button to the posts and page editors.

If you want to embed a video to a post or page all you have to do is click that button and a popup form will ask for all of the information needed to embed that video.
