WordPress 4 Media Library


If you like to showcase YouTube videos in your site or blog post, this release makes it a breeze.
Just paste in a YouTube URL on a new line, and watch it magically become an embedded video. Now try it with a tweet. Sweet! — embedding has become a visual experience. The editor shows a true preview of your embedded content, saving you time and giving you confidence.

WordPress has also expanded the services supported by default, too — you can embed videos from CollegeHumor, playlists from YouTube, and talks from TED. Check out all of the embeds that WordPress supports

Writing Content

Writing and editing is smoother and more immersive with an editor that expands to fit your content as you write, and keeps the formatting tools available at all times.
