Whether you’re looking to embed a video on your home page, a blog post or any page of your website, Squarespace makes the process super quick and easy using their built-in content blocks. There are two ways you can do this, let me show you how.

 
 

Under Pages, create a new page or click into the page/ post you would like to add a video too.

Click ‘Edit’ and find the section you would like to add your video to.

You can now add a content block.

There are two ways you can do this.

Method 1 | Video Content Block

You can use the ‘Video’ content block if you are sharing a video from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia or Animoto.

 
 

If you choose this method, you simple copy and paste the url.

You can add a keyword rich caption and upload a custom thumbnail if you wish then hit save.

Method 1 | Embed Content Block

Alternatively, you can choose the ‘Embed’ content block.

 
 

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>

 
 

Ta-da!
