Adding Youtube video to WP post

Whole beauty of WordPress lies in fact that WordPress is simple for use. Unlike most Content Management Systems, where you need to install plugins, in WordPress you will just paste Youtube link in order to share it. Adding Youtube video in WordPress post is very easy.

First go to www.youtube.com and find video you want to share in your post. Select Share button below video (Slide 1.).

Now, go to your WordPress post and just paste link you just copied, as I did. As you can see I have created dummy Lorem Ipsum post, and pasted link. Momentarily video will be shown in post although post is not published yet (Slide 3).
