It’s really straight forward tbh
Recently, I completed a website for a charity, and they wanted to create a post on their WordPress website and include a Facebook video. I’d not done this for a few years, and historically it was quite difficult to achieve.
The client is using a WordPress template called Avada from Theme Forest. It has a tonne of features and built in demo themes you can use. Not that I use any demos. I always design a website myself to suit the customers requirements, colour scheme etc, then use the framework of Avada to build the customers website.
With Avada, you can easily embed Vimeo and Youtube videos. Or if you host the video yourself on your web hosting, you can play video yourself. Although you should really host the video on another platform to reduce server load.
I used Google to research ‘how to embed Facebook videos in to WordPress’ and found that Facebook had provided some great information on how to do this: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/embedded-video-player.
And I found it surprisingly easy to do. The Facebook Developer page tells you to find the URL of the Facebook video you want to embed, paste the URL into the text box provided and click ‘Get Code’. Finally, copy and paste the HTML code in to WordPress.
In this example the Facebook video URL was: https://www.facebook.com/coryband/videos/591810541541222/
I clicked ‘Get Code’ and it gave me the following:
