How to Add Videos to Your Ghost Blog


Currently you are not able to upload videos directly to your site. An app for this will come in the future, but it is usually a better choice to host a video elsewhere anyway. Since Ghost is able to accept html inside the editor, you are able to easily use the code that websites like YouTube and Vimeo provide to put the videos directly into the post.

There are many other video hosting sites, but we will show you how to embed the two most popular, YouTube and Vimeo.

Embed Youtube Videos:

  1. Head over to the YouTube video that you are going to embed.

  2. Click on the "Share" button.

Note: If you want to change the size, in the code you pasted, change the width=560 and height=315 to the size that works for you.

Embed Vimeo Videos:

  1. Head to the Vimeo video, and click on the sharing icon (looks like a paper airplane).
