Vevo is a video hosting service owned and operated by a joint venture of Universal Music Group (UMG), Google, Sony Music Entertainment (SME) and Abu Dhabi Media. The service provides music videos from two of the "big three" major record labels: UMG and SME. This article will show you how to embed the (responsive) video content from Vevo into your WordPress website with shortcode.
Using the shortcode of
[vevo v="http://www.vevo.com/watch/ariana-grande/Problem/USUV71400762"] (the full page URL) or simply
[vevo v="USUV71400762"] (the video ID), we'll return the video below.
The video is responsive and will scale on mobile devices.
Copy and paste the WordPress function into your theme's
functions.php file or, if you sensibly have one installed, your custom functions plugin.
- It's always best to use the video ID rather than the URL, particularly - as is the case with Vevo - where the ID complies with a consistent standard .
- The video container height is automatically determined. If the height doesn't work for you, add the height into your shortcode.
- If you would like the video to autoplay when the video loads, use
ap="1"in your shortcode.
