To quickly embed a YouTube video, simply copy the video’s URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the video:

- Make sure the YouTube link is not hyperlinked. If the URL is shown in your theme’s link color (as the second line in the screenshot below), then it is hyperlinked. Simply select the whole URL and click the “Unlink” icon on your Visual Editor toolbar.
