I’m really loving the whole Facebook Live feature on my page. The great thing about it, is that I don’t have to mess with shooting a video and then uploading it. It live streams it and then saves it to my timeline.
The other great thing about it, is that I can embed my Facebook Live video in wordpress on my website. This same process can be used for any video on Facebook.
How to Embed a Facebook Live Video in WordPress
First, you will need to click the “share” button on the video from your Facebook feed.
After selecting the share button, use the drop down menu to send the video as a private message to someone. I send it as a private message to another account I have access over.
Once you send it as a private message to someone, you can click the video in your chat box. When you click it, the video will pop up and display the Facebook Live video URL.
Copy that URL and then just paste it in your blog post.
You can see the URL highlighted in the image above. Depending on your WordPress theme, you might be able to just copy and paste that into your blog post. If that doesn’t work, then use the following steps to embed it on your website.
Facebook Video Embed Code
This is the embed code that you will need to use in order to embed your Facebook video on your wordpress blog.
<div class=”fb-video” data-href=”https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152795258318553”
You will need to insert the video URL in place of the video URL in this coding. I’ve highlighted the link so that you know where to insert your video URL.
As you can see below, I have inserted the URL in place of the one in the sample code.
<div class=”fb-video” data-href=”https://www.facebook.com/lovehopeadventure/videos/vb.306322339555746/538358966352081/?type=2&theater”
Once you have the proper coding, you can put it in your blog post. You will need to click the “Text” tab in your WordPress and then paste that coding into the content where you want it to appear.
I’ve placed it in this post so that you can see how it will look on your website.
