Shortcode Embeds allow you to easily embed videos from YouTube, tweets from Twitter, and other media directly into your site without coding.
Shortcodes let you add small snippets into your content editor and get extra functionality on the front end. The Jetpack Shortcode Embeds feature gives you several different shortcode options.
When you enable Shortcode Embeds in: Jetpack Settings > Writing, you can visit a support page that lists all the different shortcode options along with further instructions on how to use the various shortcodes.
In this video, we’ll demonstrate several of the most popular shortcode embed services.
One important thing to note is that WordPress already includes the ability to convert URLs for many sites like YouTube into fully working Embeds, so you may try just pasting in the URL for your video or media and see if it works. But, if you want to customize how the embeds appear, you may want to take a look at the options for Shortcode Embeds.
