4. Enter the URL (web address) of the video along with a Title and then click Insert into Post.

5. This will return you back to your new post page where you can add additional text, videos, images, etc. to your new entry. When you are finished, simply click the Publish button.

6. You will now receive a confirmation the post has been published and can click the View Post link to see it.
