Quickly and effortlessly add a video to your site. Simply copy and paste. No plugins required!

Ready to add your Animoto video to your WordPress site?

Copy the video’s URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the video:

Animoto Play URL

Paste it on a line by itself in your post/page editor:

Wordpress Editor

Make sure the Animoto 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.

Animoto Hyperlink

Once the URL is unlinked, you will see the link text in black. Make sure to place the Animoto URL on its own line. This means there should be no character or whitespace before or after the URL/shortcode.

That’s it! Your Animoto video is ready to view on your site.
