How to embed Youtube video in AMP page – WordPress




We can embed Youtube video in AMP in two ways:

1. Using AMP plugin for WordPress

This plugin is developed by ‘Automattic‘, the corporation behind WordPress.com. It provides an easy way to embed Social media posts to WordPress blog that is compatible with both web and AMP version.


To embed a Youtube video in your WordPress article, simply add the URL of the Youtube video in WordPress editor in a new line:
eg:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGENRKrdoGY

After publishing the article, you can see that it appears perfect for the web as well as the AMP version.


You can view the AMP version of this article by clicking this link on a mobile device.

2. Without using the plugin

If we are not using the AMP plugin for WordPress, we need to use the amp-youtube component.

1. Include the amp-youtube component: Place this script in the above the closing of the <head> tag.

2. Now we can embed the twitter post by adding the below code to our template file.
