You can then copy and paste your video embed code in and select save. If you want to center your video be sure to include <center> before the code with no spacing and </center>at the end of the code.


Example:

<center><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0gv-P4NYDX8" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe></center>
